Hello All: 

This is my second attempt to drum up some interest in ordering home health care for CMS patients.  There has to be SOMEONE out there who would like to be able to authorize home health care!!! THE CARES act has been extended indefinitely, allowing NP's to order home care for Medicaid and Medicare patients.  Now we need RI statutes to be updated to allow this to happen for all of you.

I am attaching 2 documents. One shows where RI state laws and rules have to be changed for NP's in RI to order home care. The second is a letter template to send to your legislators. 

This IS an election year, so get to it!!!!!
