Lawmakers Back Home Health Providers, Condemn Payment Cuts in Symbolic Subcommittee Hearing

The Senate Finance Committee’s Subcommittee on Health Care held a hearing last week regarding aging in place and access to home health care in the U.S.  The hearing was a symbolic win for home health providers across the country.

Lawmakers came across as more educated on home health care – and the issues the sector faces – than ever. They also were unsure why more investment wasn’t being put toward home-based care.

“Because of the lack of a coordinated policy, seniors often end up in a more costly environment, in a less desirable environment, and – I would suggest – a more dangerous environment for their long-term health,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MA), the chair of the subcommittee, said.

Cardin also began the hearing by mentioning there’s a “great deal of interest” from both Democrats and Republicans on the topic of home health care.
