The Hospital at Home Users Group, in partnership with the American Academy of Home Care Medicine, is pleased to present our latest webinar for hospital and system leaders interested in learning about the opportunities and challenges associated with providing acute care in the home.
Reliable payment mechanisms are an essential building block of sustainable hospital at home programs. In addition to the CMS Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver, programs are turning to other payers, notably state Medicaid programs, to expand their reach and make HaH more accessible to low-income patients.
This webinar features speakers from three states–Illinois, Massachusetts, and North Carolina–that are in different stages of advancing Medicaid coverage for HaH services. In addition to representing different states, each panelist has a unique perspective as a clinician, payer, or advocate.
Panelists describe their states’ experience with expanding Medicaid coverage for HaH, including the barriers and facilitators to the process. They address how HaH programs have adapted to this coverage, and how working with Medicaid is promoting greater health equity.
