Review the questions we discussed

  1. Many of us in healthcare/senior care have had a pivotal moment where we decided this was the career for us. Share with us your journey in healthcare and home care specifically to NAHC.
  2. What do you see as the major positive and negative forces/dynamics that have emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic?
  3. The level of interest around the use of technology has increased – particularly remote patient monitoring (RPM) and telehealth – where is Congress headed in the use of RPM and telehealth? Will the policy changes that occurred as part of the Covid-19 response be made permanent?
  4. What is the outlook for Medicare payments in the future as we continue and then hopefully emerge from the stresses of the pandemic?
  5. Hospice –Medicare Advantage (MA) carve in – what should leaders pay attention to here and what does the pathway look like? What should we expect in the near-term relative to legislative and regulatory action on the carve-in?
  6. What do you see as the respective roles of HHAs and hospices in palliative care? What will it take from Washington to make community-based palliative care a reality?
  7. There is talk about finding a way for care at home to be used as a substitute for care in nursing facilities. What would it take to create a true SNF at home option? Is there interest in Washington in such a concept?
  8. MedPAC has issued recommendations to Congress on some matters that directly would affect home health and hospice, for example, a post-acute care unified payment model, rate cuts, and a reduction of the hospice cap. What is the outlook for these matters?
