ASHNHA Legislative Fly-in 2018

Feb. 27- Feb. 28, Juneau Baranof Hotel

Alaska’s unresolved budget gap continues to pose significant challenges and attention has increasingly turned to the cost of health care. In the 2018 session, Legislators will be debating new revenue, further cuts to state spending, and several important health care policy issues. We will rely on the power of collective advocacy to maintain support for critical health care services, access to insurance coverage and reasonable provider rates.  Please register for our annual legislative meeting to learn about the current state and federal legislative environment and help share the message about the importance of hospitals and nursing homes in our communities.

This meeting is open to ASHNHA members and invited guests. Registration is free for Type 1 and Type 2 ASHNHA members (hospitals and nursing homes). Associate members and ACEP members may attend with a registration fee of $100.

Meeting Schedule: Tuesday, Feb. 27 beginning with lunch at 11:30 a.m. and ending with a reception at the ASHNHA office Wednesday, Feb. 28 from 4-6 p.m.

Small Hospital Committee prior to the Legislative meeting: We have invited DHSS leadership to join the ASHNHA Small/rural hospital & nursing home member for an opportunity for structured dialogue on rural hospital and nursing home issues. We will discuss the question, how can we sustain and strengthen our rural hospital/nursing home infrastructure in Alaska? DHSS leadership will join us for breakfast on February 27 from 8-10 am, we will continue with a short committee meeting from 10-11 am.
Location: Baranof Hotel, Juneau
