Better Care Better Job Act  - What it Means for Home Care Agencies and Caregivers

President Biden’s American Jobs Plan includes a historic investment in Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS). The Better Care Better Jobs Act carries forward President Biden’s vision. Specifically, the bill would: enhance Medicaid funding for HCBS and encourage innovative models that benefit direct care workers and care recipients.

On Tuesday, July 13, 2021 direct care workers across the country came together to rally for Jobs, care and justice. In this nationwide effort to push Congress to pass the "Better Care Better Jobs Act," which is part of President Biden’s American Jobs Plan, many home care agencies may be asking the question: How does the Better Care Better Job Act impact my agency and my caregivers?

Join our guest Robert Espinoza, Vice President of Policy, PHI and CareAcademy's own Erika Sessions, Compliance and Policy Development Manager on  July 29th at 1pm ET as we discuss how this bill would impact home care.
