Advocacy

As part of our mission to work on behalf of our members, LifeSpan closely works with State agencies, the General Assembly and the Governor's Office to ensure that providers of post-acute care services have both the resources and the flexibility needed to provide quality of care to their patients and clients.

Each year, LifeSpan, through its' member-driven Public Policy Committee, tracks bills introduced during the General Assembly Session which could potentially affect provider operations and then advocates for the position taken by the Committee.  To learn more of this process and the successful advocacy efforts taken by LifeSpan in 2016, you can read the 2016 Sine Die Report.

Outside of the General Assembly Session, LifeSpan staff and members participate on several key workgroups and Councils that are changing the delivery of health care services in Maryland, including the HSCRC Advisory Council, the Duals Care Delivery Workgroup, the Maryland Health Care Commission as well as several other boards and commissions.
