Home Care Magazine
Home health leaders with the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare (Partnership) and National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) applaud the introduction of S. 433, legislation to improve home health payment reforms to ensure beneficiary access to quality care services is not compromised for America’s growing senior population. Introduced by Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Kennedy (R-Louisiana), Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana), Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan), Doug Jones (D-Alabama) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire), the legislation will refine home health payment to ensure behavioral-based payment adjustments are rooted in evidence and observed data.
