Older Americans Overwhelmingly Support Choose Home Care Act
Home Health Care News
The vast majority of older Americans want to age in place, several past surveys have found.
Unsurprisingly, that desire has translated into overwhelming support for the Choose Home Care Act.
Introduced in July by Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Todd Young (R-Ind.), Choose Home is legislation designed to give nursing home-eligible Medicare beneficiaries more options for how and where they recover following a hospital stay. If enacted, Choose Home would make “extended care services” an add-on to the existing Medicare home health benefit for a 30-day window.
