Bill Would Make Home Medicare Program Permanent

Compassion & Choices praised the introduction of Independence at Home Act of 2016 (S. 3130). The bill would convert the Affordable Care Act’s home care pilot program into a permanent, national Medicare program. Under the Independence at Home program, patients with debilitating diseases get primary care at home from coordinated teams of doctors, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals. The program reduces avoidable emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and re-admissions. Mark Dann, federal affairs director for Compassion & Choices said, “A great benefit of providing care in a person’s home is advance care planning conversations seem to happen naturally more often and can be updated as their illness progresses and their care wishes change. If an individual ends up in the hospital, but did not want to be there, the whole team is aware of these wishes and can attempt to quickly correct the situation.”
