UPDATE: National Association for Home Care & Hospice Offers Key Membership Benefits

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) serves as the unified voice for the home care and hospice community, representing the nation’s 33,000 home care and hospice providers and the two million nurses, therapists, and aides they employ, along with 12 million patients who depend on home care and hospice providers. The nonprofit offers communities and stakeholders the best in advocacy, education, and information. It also provides members with several key benefits, including discounts and group-purchasing agreements for products and services, through its affinity programs.

Manchester Specialty Programs Inc. is proud to be among NAHC’s select affinity programs, offering eligible members a 5% premium discount on Workers’ Compensation insurance, one of the core coverages available in our insurance program. In addition to providing this state-mandated coverage, we offer risk management tools and strategies available through our insurer partners to help home health care providers, hospices and others with controlling Workers’ Comp costs, improving on-the-job safety, assisting employees in returning to work, and reducing fraudulent claims.

In addition to Workers’ Compensation insurance, we also provide the health care, companion care, VNAs, hospices and medical staffing firms with a total insurance solution that includes the following: Professional Liability, General Liability & Package, Abuse & Molestation, Crime, Non-Owned & Hired Auto, Management Liability (D&O and EPLI), Cyber Liability and Regulation Audit Coverage. Our program is available in all 50 states, and coverage is written with “A+” highly rated carriers.

NAHC members, along with our Workers’ Comp discount, have access to a number of other benefits through the nonprofit’s affinity programs. This includes on-line training courses at discounted rates through the trade association’s affinity partner, Relias Learning. Through the courses provided by Relias Learning, home care and hospice professionals can meet regulatory and compliance standards. Members also enjoy a discount on the Relias Learning Management System, which provides systematic training for on-boarding and staff development; customized training options to drive compliance with an home health care agency’s training and continuous improvement programs; and automated training management tools to save time and money and track training results. Participating in ongoing education and staff training makes good business sense and also creates a more favorable account from an insurance underwriting standpoint.

Other NAHC member benefits include special incentives on car fleet acquisitions and car rental discounts through Enterprise Fleet Management and free educational materials on CMS programs, policies, and initiatives through the Medical Learning Network.  

NAHC’s partnership with Manchester Specialty represents our long-term commitment to proudly serving and helping to protect the home health care and hospice industry from an insurance standpoint. We are committed to working with our top-tier insurance carrier partners to develop additional custom NAHC member enhancements for our current products.
