Home Care Agencies Shifting Focus of Surveys and It’s Impacting Quality of Care and Service

Earning a state licensure, Medicare or Medicaid certification or accreditation can be quite intensive for a home care agency. As the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun providing a rating system for home care agencies, it becomes crucial for the prosperity and even survival of those companies to be in compliance and have a quality rating.

NYC Investigation Finds Majority of Interviewed Home Health Care Agencies Taking Advantage of Aides

It should come as no surprise to individuals who operate within the home health care sector that fraud and abuse can and does happen.

The paramedics roll to another call, but they’re not just going about their normal routine; they’ll soon be providing direct medical attention and treatment to an individual at home.

That made it difficult for some seniors and disabled adults to seek adequate medical care.
