Public Policy

Active involvement in legislative initiatives and political activities is a key component of our success as an association, and also the success of our members in the long term care profession. Illinois Health Care Association (IHCA) is dedicated to offering comprehensive legislative, regulatory and political support to our diverse membership.

To make sure that all of our members’ needs are being met, IHCA and The Center for Developmental Disabilities Advocacy and Community Supports (CDDACS) work in collaboration on these efforts, with IHCA focusing on the geriatric end of the spectrum and CDDACS concentrating on the needs of our members who serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For more information about CDDACS and their work in the legislative and regulatory arenas, please visit their website,
