Impacting government policy is critical to the success of your community and residents. With so many laws and regulations dictating procedure, operations, and care, it is critical you use your voice to educate and inform decision-makers in the state and federal legislatures and agencies. Developing and maintaining relationships with decision makers is a first step to positively impacting your future with your voice.
Elected officials play a vital role in the skilled nursing and assisted living profession. Many of the policies that affect your facility and residents are decided by the 50 senators and 100 representatives in the Indiana General Assembly, as well as our 11 members of the U.S. Congress.
By hosting a legislative tour in your skilled nursing or assisted living community, you have an opportunity to educate state and federal legislators, while giving them the opportunity to hear firsthand about the profession from their constituent staff and residents.
IHCA/INCAL Staff are ready to help you schedule a tour with your local legislators.

This newsletter, brought to you by IHCA/INCAL’s government affairs team, is designed to provide you with updates on key bills and other related news affecting Indiana’s long term care industry. You can also check out all of the legislative action on our Advocacy page.

Each legislative session IHCA/INCAL hosts a day for our members to come to the Statehouse to learn about the legislative process, key legislation being debated, and to have lunch at the Statehouse with lawmakers. This is a great way to connect with your legislators in their place of work and to lobby them on issues that are important to you and your residents.VIEW PHOTO GALLERY
