CONGRESS SENDS A STRONG MESSAGE ON CONTINUING INNOVATION IN HOME-BASED CARE
Hospital at Home extension finds a place in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023
WASHINGTON, December 20, 2022 – Moving Health Home (MHH), a coalition of health care organizations with a bold vision to make the home a site of clinical service, responded today to the released text of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023.
“Moving Health Home applauds Congress for including an extension of the Acute Hospital Care at Home (AHCAH) waiver in the omnibus funding package. Patients needing acute-level care, and their caregivers, will continue to have access to these services in the home. By temporarily extending the AHCAH waiver, participating programs will now have the predictability and stability they need for their patients and providers. It will also allow for additional data collection to inform policymakers on important considerations to permanently expand access to home-based care,” said Krista Drobac, Founder, Moving Health Home. “Today Congress sent a strong message that innovative, home-based care is critical to the future of health care – and that is a win for patients.”
