Welcome to the National Medicaid Action Council Resource Center

The National Medicaid Action Council is an affiliate of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice that focuses exclusively on Medicaid home care issues. Medicaid is the single largest home care program in the country. The Council is the voice of home care on the federal level, with advocacy on a range on Medicaid home care policy issues and the central force on original research to further high-quality home care in Medicaid. Working in partnership with the NAHC Forum of State Associations, the Council gives home care a powerful and effective role in federal and state Medicaid policy and operations. Governance of the Council is broad-based, with representation from the NAHC membership as a whole and full integration into NAHC’s organization overall.

Katharine Howard will be taking the lead in updating the site. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2007 with a B.A. in Art History.  She spent two semesters abroad, attending American InterContinental University in London in 2003 and American University in Cairo in 2005.  Katharine attributes her fresh approach to research and writing to her design background and creative inquisitiveness.
