Supported Legislation

Throughout each two-year Congressional session, HAN staff works together with the leadership of NHPCO, including the Public Policy Committee, to consider various pieces of legislation directly impacting the hospice and end-of-life care community. In many cases, NHPCO will take a position of support for legislation that will advance our cause.
