HCA is New York’s premier state home care association. Our official mission is “to promote and enhance the quality and accessibility of health care and support at home.”
HCA was formed in 1978 to further the development of home care services, act as an advocate for home care, and provide information to help improve the development, availability, accessibility and quality of home care services.
HCA provides comprehensive education programs, effective advocacy at the state and federal level, and public awareness through state and national media. HCA’s Board of Directors and nearly 400 members work to promote cost-effective home and community-based services to the people of New York State.
HCA is an active voice in the health care community, working closely with state and federal legislators, regulatory agencies, and payors to interpret, challenge, or support policies that affect the home care profession.
