US Reps in House Introduce Choose Home Care Act of 2021
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare (PQHH) commend the introduction of the Choose Home Care Act of 2021 in the US House of Representatives.
Introduced by Representatives Henry Cuellar (D-TX) and James Comer (R-KY), the bipartisan legislation is designed to increase access to home health care following hospitalization for eligible Medicare beneficiaries by offering a safe, high-quality post-acute option for nursing home level services in the home. The Choose Home Care Act was also introduced in the U.S. Senate (S.2562) in July by Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Todd Young (R-IN).
