Identify Risk to Optimize Response

Managing COVID-19 in at-home care settings

.

In a recent survey conducted by Home Health Care News in the wake of the crisis in the United States, 31% of home-based care organizations said operations have already been impacted by the crisis—and we anticipate that number will continue to rise.

Early last month, the Trump Administration announced expanded Medicare telehealth coverage and reimbursement for “practitioners” to give patients greater access to care during the COVID-19 outbreak. The measure did not apply to home health and hospice providers.

More recently, after much push back from healthcare leaders across the country, lawmakers passed the CARES Act, which improves care planning for Medicare home health services and now encourages the use of telecommunications in home health patient communication. However, CARES Act does not provide reimbursement for the use of telecommunication tools. Medalogix is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will continue to provide updates and support.
