WASHINGTON – AAHomecare has retained Brown & Fortunato to provide a range of legal and advisory services. Long-time HME industry advocate Cara Bachenheimer, who is set to open a Washington, D.C., lobbying office for the Amarillo, Texas-based law firm in June, will take the lead role representing the association’s regulatory and legislative priorities. “I have had a front-row view of Cara’s work on HME public policy issues over the years, and I have always come away impressed by her depth of knowledge and strategic thinking,” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of AAHomecare. “She has a great sense of what can practically be accomplished on Capitol Hill and at regulatory agencies, and has a clear view of the best path forward to achieve it.”Bachenheimer has served as senior vice president of government relations for Invacare for the past 14 years.
