March 12-13, 2024

 
Registration Now Open!
 
Join us in March to refresh your policy knowledge and champion the needs of older adults and caregivers on Capitol Hill.

2024 will be a busy year for aging advocates as Congress prepares for OAA reauthorization, FY 2025 appropriations for key aging programs and the continuation of efforts related to caregiving and the caring workforce. With all these issues on the horizon, it’s more important than ever for aging advocates like YOU to join us in Washington, DC, to learn about these issues and then educate Congress.

Attendees will learn more about advocating for USAging’s aging policy priorities, gain insider analysis of the policy landscape from key federal agencies, congressional staff and aging stakeholders, and get the messaging, tools and tactics to best advocate on behalf of older adults and caregivers at the local, state and national levels. USAging’s Aging and Disability Business Institute will once again host a special intensive session—details below. And, new this year, we are offering a special intensive on advocacy skills, which is free to USAging members! 

In exciting news, we will host an evening reception on Capitol Hill, which is the perfect opportunity for attendees to network and engage with Members of Congress and their staffers! 

Topics to be covered include: AAA contracting opportunities, social care and health care partnerships, caregiving, Medicaid HCBS, health IT, Medicare, reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, and other policy areas.

Billing Codes and Data Standards: What AAAs, CBOs and Community Care Hubs (CCHs) Need to Know to Navigate the Social Care Payment Landscape (see below for details and pricing!) 

The 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule adds new codes related to social care interventions that expand Medicare payment opportunities for AAAs, CBOs and CCH-led networks. Capitalizing on these and other opportunities will require sharing care and data between health and social care partners. Meanwhile the standards world continues to march forward on the development of data standards that will govern this information exchange and that will require AAAs and CBOs to develop the capacity to perform billing and electronically exchange data as well as payment codes in a health care compliant manner to support screening, assessing and addressing individuals’ health-related social needs (HRSNs). Come to this pre-conference intensive to dive deep on these critical issues and prepare your organization to take advantage of new opportunities to improve care for the populations you serve.
