Improve Medicare Patient Access to Home Health Services
This Legislation would Authorize Nurse Practitioners (NPs) to Certify Patient Eligibility for Medicare Home Health Services.
Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) reintroduced the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (S. 445). The bill would allow nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse midwives, as well as physician assistants to certify home health services, ultimately removing barriers to ensure Medicare patients have timely access to care.
