HHS announces moves on community-based care
Modern Healthcare

HHS released a final rule for a new Medicaid community-based care option, released a proposed rule for the expansion of an existing community- and home-based Medicaid care option and unveiled the participants in a Medicare home healthcare demonstration program. The moves are all part of an effort to allow people to more easily receive care and services in their communities rather than being admitted to a hospital or nursing home, according to an HHS news release.
