ANA applauds Senators Collins (R-ME) and Schumer (D-NY) for introducing S.578, the Home Health Care Planning and Improvement Act of 2015. This bill would amend a quirk in the Medicare law which has kept advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), a group that includes nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified nurse midwives, from signing home health care plans and from certifying Medicare patients for the home health benefit.
