Landmark Choose Home Bill Introduced in the House
Home Health Care News
The Choose Home Care Act of 2021 was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives early Friday morning.
The legislation was previously introduced in the Senate at the end of July.
If enacted, the landmark Choose Home legislation would create an add-on payment to the traditional Medicare Home Health Benefit, allowing providers to mix in telehealth, transportation, personal care and other services. The goal of the concept is to give nursing home-eligible Medicare beneficiaries more options as to how and where they recover following a trip to the hospital.
