Home Healthcare Reimbursement Freeze is Barrier to Commonwealth Goal of Advancing Alternative Care
Date:2/11/2008

atives."

Hoak noted that despite the fact that Pennsylvania's home health agencies have a proven success rate in keeping people out of the hospital; Pennsylvania still has some of the highest rates of any state for avoidable hospitalizations for those with chronic conditions. This is because of the lack of use of home health care.

Hoak said the PA Homecare Association supports Rendell's goal of reducing the cost of providing optimum care while allowing citizens to remain in a home environment.

"The governor is correct when he identifies home health care as the more desirable solution for both the patient and the state treasury. We hope to persuade the General Assembly that a $10 million investment in home health care is good fiscal policy because it is win-win situation: A win for Medicaid because home health care is cheaper than costly inpatient facilities, such as hospitals and nursing homes; and a win for consumers, who want to be cared for at home.

The Pennsylvania Homecare Association is headquartered just outside of Harrisburg and represents more than 300 agencies that deliver care and support directly in the homes of more than a million elderly and disabled citizens in the state of Pennsylvania.
