American Health Care Association
As a member of PHCA you are also a member of one of the nation’s largest associations of long term and post-acute care providers, the American Health Care Association (AHCA). AHCA advocates for quality care and services for frail, elderly, and disabled Americans. Our members provide essential care to approximately one million individuals in 12,000 not-for-profit and proprietary member facilities.
AHCA represents the long term care community to the nation at large – to government, business leaders, and the general public. We serve as a force for change, providing information, education, and administrative tools that enhance quality at every level. As part of our extensive portfolio of member services, AHCA maintains legislative, regulatory and public affairs. Our dedicated staff work both internally and externally to assist member providers, the government, and the general public.
AHCA, its affiliates, and member providers advocate for individuals who – because of social needs, disability, trauma or illness – require services provided in a long term care setting. We continue to advocate for the continuing vitality of the long term care provider community.
AHCA is committed to developing necessary and reasonable public policies which balance economic and regulatory principles to support quality care and quality of life.
