This year has proven to be anything but normal at the General Assembly. Instead of adjournment with sine die, which indicates that no future business schedule this session, the Republican majority passed House Joint Resolution 1101, which calls back lawmakers on November 27. This political power move gives the Republican super-majority one last session no matter what happens on election day.
Despite this unusual legislative session, BAYADA managed to accomplish the following legislative priorities:
- Secured a 12.37% aide rate increase for CAP-DA, effective Jan 2019
- Protected Certificate of Need from elimination for our Medicare offices
- Secured a 9% rate increase from Partners Behavioral Health for our Habilitation offices, effective August 1, 2018
Thank You to our many ambassadors and advocates that helped us achieve these goals. We could not have done it without your passionate voices coming together to support all of North Carolina’s home care employees and clients.
