In September 2020, the HCAOA Georgia Chapter surveyed the membership on several key issues related to COVID-19 and the impact on members. The results of this survey were instrumental in our success in lobbying for a Medicaid rate increase during the 2021 legislative session. The lobbying process is beginning again as we get ready for the 2022 legislative session, so we need our membership’s input on the state of the home care business in Georgia.  Please note: the questions are detailed but the data will be used in aggregate totals without identifying individual participating providers. Thank you in advance for your valuable input!
