Just last month, Rep. Jones and Rep. McGovern circulated a letter to their colleagues stating their intention to reform this working group. Home health and hospice are rapidly growing areas of medical care but have spent the past few years dealing with attempts to cut the Medicare reimbursement for these programs. Due to the efforts of Rep. McGovern and Rep. Jones home care and hospice now will have a group of strong advocates in Congress.
For their work on behalf of home health and hospice we are pleased to award this week's Backbencher of the Week to Rep. McGovern and Rep. Jones. Congratulations.
