Well, we’re one year out since the pandemic officially began, and it looks like we may be turning a corner. Vaccine access is expanding and the Biden administration has lifted some restrictions on nursing home visits
And on Wednesday, Congress passed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which has several measures that might affect those who provide home-based care. 
“In particular, the dedicated funding for Medicaid home- and community-based services will ensure home care recipients can continue to receive care in the safest possible environment, their home,” the National Association for Homecare and Hospice said in a statement. “Likewise, the increased provider relief funding for rural providers will prove to be a lifeline for patients and providers alike to continue care delivery in rural areas. NAHC appreciates the late change on this provision extending eligibility to providers that serve rural areas, not just those located in rural areas.”
Jay Witter, senior vice president of public policy for the American Association for Homecare, said the group was reviewing the impact the additional rural provider relief funding in the bill will have on the HME sector.
