Policy Positions

Welcome to the Policy page for LeadingAge national.

Part of being the trusted voice for aging is advocating for policies that remove barriers to care, develop new services, improve reimbursement, and make this country a better place to grow old. LeadingAge's advocacy team regularly meets with lawmakers to educate them on the policy issues that impact our provider organizations, their employees, and the residents and families they serve.

Take a look at our current top policy positions below and keep track of our weekly activities in the Breaking Advocacy News section, find out the latest Regulatory Information and make your voice heard by one of many Grassroots activities.
