Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2017

Posted 12 months ago by Denise Tucker

Take Action Now on Home Health

Ask your Members of Congress to cosponsor Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2017 (S. 445/H.R. 1825) to make it possible for NPs to provide necessary services for their Medicare patients by allowing them to certify that patients under their care are eligible for home health care services. Passage of this legislation will reduce Medicare spending by eliminating duplicative services while also improving the quality and timeliness of care for the beneficiaries who require home health services.
