Join Us Every Wednesday for Assisted Living Lobby Days in Olympia

February 6, February 13, February 20 and February 27

Every Wednesday in February, the teams from WHCA and LeadingAge Washington are hosting Medicaid-contracted assisted living providers in Olympia.

Please make it a priority to advocate for improved Medicaid funding with your colleagues. Here’s how:

  1. Make sure you know the legislative district for your facility. Click here to for the legislative district look up.
  2. Call legislative assistants to book an appointment. Here’s a roster of all legislators with office contact information. You will want to meet with both of your representatives and your senator. If you’d like to email, here’s a sample message to legislative assistants: Greetings, as an assisted living provider in the XX district, I am reaching out to schedule an appointment with (Rep/Senator X) on (date).  I would like to brief Senator/Representative X about assisted living challenges, and the need for improved Medicaid funding this year. Additionally, I want to share my concerns about workforce issues that threaten our delivery of care and services. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Please call me at (phone) if you have questions.
  3. When you’ve confirmed your appointments, email with your appointment information.
  4. Plan to come to Olympia for an 8:00 a.m. briefing if you are attending morning appointments. A noon briefing will be scheduled for those with afternoon meeting. We will meet in Pritchard Cafeteria, and handouts and updates regarding our work on assisted living Medicaid funding will be provided. Our internal lobby team staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide support.
  5. Here are some links to make it easy to visit the Capitol:
