The South Carolina Home Care & Hospice Association's (SCHCHA) Political Action Committee - or SC CarePAC - was established in 2013 to give greater visibility and credibility to South Carolina's in-home health, hospice, and community-based service industry, primarily in the South Carolina General Assembly. CarePAC bylaws provide that annual membership consists of those individuals who contribute to the political action fund during that calendar year.
By raising funds from individuals who care about the future of in-home care, and making contributions to candidates for elected offices that also want to preserve and expand access to in-home services, CarePAC is a vital access tool that serves the interests of our agencies and the patients they serve. With your support, CarePAC will:
Help increase the number of policymakers who will know about, and value, the high quality and cost-effective in-home services provided by South Carolina 's in-home health, hospice, and community-based care agencies
Give our sector of health care a stronger voice in government and work diligently to ensure that our citizens have equal access to all government funded programs and services
Corporations AND individuals may contribute to a PAC under South Carolina law. A home care or hospice agency may contribute to a PAC, as well as the agency's administrators, staff, and other interested individuals. CarePAC may accept contributions in the form of a personal check, cash, or credit card, or money order. All funds in CarePAC will be set aside in a special bank account.
