Government Affairs

On behalf of our members and those they serve, NNFA and NALA work closely with the state and federal governments and other professional associations in an effort to ensure that the legal environment in which we operate is reasonable and we are proactively taking advantage of opportunities to hone the law in the best interests of long-term care providers and the residents they serve.

The main committees related to government affairs are the Government Relations Committee, Care PAC Committee, and Medicaid Rate Committee. The Government Relations Committee sets the Associations’ official position on legislation, Care PAC Committee makes expenditure and fundraising decisions related to PAC, and the Medicaid Rate Committee discusses the formula for Medicaid reimbursement for nursing facilities, its shortcomings and flaws and how they could be improved.
