  •   Webinar
  •   9/26/2017
  •   Angelo Spinola, Shareholder, Littler Mendelson PC

President Trump has taken office with a Republican majority in both the Senate and House of Representatives. The new administration already has taken action that will impact home care, including the failed appeal of the Affordable Care Act, and nominating Alexander Acosta as the next Secretary of Labor and Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. What do these and other developments mean for home care companies? No one can say with certainty what will happen, but investigations and lawsuits against healthcare and home care companies continue to rise, while the new political administration’s policy agenda remains in flux.

In the second of a three-part series, the focus is on the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) – which will radically change all things reimbursement for the home health industry and it is projected to reduced HH spending in 2019 alone by up to $950 million.  We will also discuss how the industry can fight this change through participation in the Rule-Making Process to help minimize the impact and/or postpone its implementation.
