A proposal in the US House of Representatives, known as the “Tri-Committee” Health Reform Bill, would take $56.8 billion over ten years from the Medicare home health payment, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC).
CNN reported on a 12 year old California girl getting care from a team of home health professionals. The story highlights how that care is threatened by potential cuts in the Tri-Committee bill.
