Born Named ‘Friend Of Home Health Care’

(Beaver Dam) A state representative from Beaver Dam is being recognized for supporting the utilization of expanded home health care. Mark Born was named a “Friend of Home Health Care” by the Wisconsin Association for Home Health Care.

This designation publicly identifies legislators who promote the expanded utilization of home health care as an effective option for post-acute medical treatment. The association says the award is based on the organization’s support for two policies. The first policy is Assembly Bill 960, which protects medical officials from physical violence.

The second policy is the Wisconsin Association for Home Health Care successfully advocating for a Medicaid reimbursement rate for home health services in the 2021 through 2023 state budget.
