CAHCF Member Hosted Facility Tours is an Essential Component of the CAHCF 2024 Medicaid Advocacy Campaign!

Facility tours are an essential component in the overall CAHCF 2024 Medicaid advocacy campaign. The facility tours enable state lawmakers to firsthand how important your skilled nursing facility is in the district. Moreover, CAHCF members must begin alerting state legislators that a substantial Medicaid investment in Connecticut nursing homes must be made in the 2024 Session of the Connecticut General Assembly. Facility tours have proven to be one of the long-term care sector’s best grassroots lobbying tools. These CAHCF resources and guides make inviting state legislators to your buildings a simple process.
