Legislative Day

Long Term Care was at the forefront in Frankfort during the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities (KAHCF) Legislative day. KAHCF is the trade association that represents propriety and nonproprietary nursing facilities and personal care homes across the state of Kentucky.

Attendees met with lawmakers to discuss legislation that’s important to the healthcare industry. Christian Heights administrator Tammy Workman was in attendance and said that she had an opportunity to discuss Senate Bill 2 and Senate Bill 20 as it relates to healthcare. She also said that they discussed the Medicaid budgets effect on long term care facilities. “It was a very informative meeting, and a productive day.” Tammy also had an opportunity to speak with several Senators, and meet with the Senate Majority leader. She was invited to sit in on the senate caucus meeting, and was given special floor privileges during the afternoon senate session. State Senator Whitney Westerfield was unavailable due to prior commitments, however, Mrs. Workman has had several discussions with him concerning healthcare.
