Home-Healthcare and Community-Based Services
Care of adults and children with post-acute care needs, chronic conditions or who need assistance with the activities of daily living is increasingly shifting from an institutional model to home-based care. Home- and community-based services are a key part of the future of care for these service-intense patient populations, whether it is as a result of patient choice or as a reduced-cost alternative to institutional care. U.S. healthcare policy is also experimenting with many different new models of care in the home through Medicaid waiver programs.
Home- and community-based care providers have to navigate the highly regulated healthcare environment. They have seen tremendous growth and change as patient needs and choices have evolved, while U.S. healthcare policy has also changed. In addition, this segment of the industry has experienced tremendous investor interest, along with regulatory enforcement scrutiny.
At Duane Morris, our healthcare attorneys are experienced advocates and counselors who understand the business, regulatory and reimbursement climate for home- and community-based care providers. Our attorneys work with our clients to help them deal with change, grow, interact with regulatory agencies and understand the payer and reimbursement landscape.
Duane Morris healthcare attorneys have experience representing for-profit and not-for-profit providers, visiting nurse associations, single-site providers, national chain providers and private equity investors in home- and community-based services.
