NAHC keeps its members ahead of the curve on all issues through several sources:
NAHC Report, a daily e-newsletter, offers the latest information on legislation, regulations, litigation, and general news affecting home care and hospice. NAHC members receive a electronic version sent to them in their e-mail, with access to the full text of each article on NAHC's web site.
