Healthcare started in the home.

 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the home care and hospice communities are coming together and doing our part to provide critical, quality care, and services to Americans at home, in a national effort to keep each other safe.

 

We want to thank, our members of Congress, for recognizing the important role of home care and hospice during the pandemic and  supporting emergency funding and resources that will help keep patients at home and slow the spread of COVID-19.

 

But, during this unprecedented challenge, the unsung heroes of the home care and hospice communities continue to need their support to:

  • Access and receive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Doing so will enable the care of virus-afflicted care to be delivered in the home freeing up beds for more severe cases.
  • Permit the full scale use of home telehealth visits, including telephonic, as a substitute for in-person services whenever clinically acceptable. This change would apply for benefit eligibility and payment purposes.

Healthcare began in the home and was cultivated out of pressing social need. Today, that social need has returned, and we need you to ask your members of Congress  to continue to support the home care and hospice communities with funding and resources.
