CMSA's Public Policy Committee serves to represent member interests on issues affecting care management professionals and their patient's wellbeing. Nationally two topics of interest are, Multi-state nursing licensure and CMS reimbursement for Case Management CPTcodes. Stay tuned for more information on these important initiatives.
Nurses Day at the Capitol
Nurses' Day at the Capitol, what a wonderful experience! It was a sight to behold. For as far as the eye could see, nurses and nursing students filled the State House steps to capacity. The placards told the story, the band set the mood, and the speakers addressed the crowd with story after story of the value of nursing and how our future depends upon addressing our issues. The elected officials in attendance truly understand our issues and are willing to act on our behalf. It was a great day to be in Montgomery and it was a great day to be a nurse! Please see the attached legislative update for more info on the current issues and legislation which impact nursing.
