Mara McDermott joined the “Lunch and Learn: Advancing Acute Hospital Care at Home” webinar, a discussion on the need for Congressional action to address the Hospital at Home waiver flexibilities that enable this model of care delivery to be tied to the duration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) on Wednesday, June 8 at 12:30 PM (EST).
McDermott+Consulting was proud to sponsor this webinar with the Advanced Care at Home Coalition as part of the “Hospital at Home Week of Action.”
Learn more about The Hospital Inpatient Services Modernization Act, a solution to ensure access to these services for two years beyond the duration of the PHE. This bipartisan bill would also require that within one year of enactment, CMS issue regulations establishing health and safety requirements for AHCAH Programs. By extending the waiver program, Congress will both sustain the existing momentum and investment in the program, as well as allow for additional experience and data collection that can inform the potential of a longer-term payment model for these services in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Without such an extension, much of the ongoing development of acute care at home programs will likely sunset.
