CMSA is committed to supporting policy that affects case
management but can’t do it alone. Efforts to enact change to improve our
members’ ability to help their patients and families achieve the best health outcomes
possible are best influenced at the local or state level. Communicating not
only to the national legislature, but state/local policymakers as well is critical
in making the connections necessary and building lasting relationships to
support our needs. It will take everyone working together to truly ensure that
the voice of the case manager is heard and that we have a seat at the table for
any decision made that affects the patient and their family.
