We traditionally think of homecare as involving health care providers coming into our homes or apartments to take care of our clinical needs. Homecare is one of the most rapidly evolving areas in healthcare, with constantly changing rules and practices regarding licensure, employment, reimbursement and general operations. In today’s world, there is a major emphasis on living independently and receiving care at home. Greater numbers of our elderly and disabled populations are living in assisted living residences and other adult care facilities, community residences and other community-based settings. Certified home health agencies, licensed home care services agencies, as well as the nurses, home health aides, physical and occupational therapists, and other professionals who deliver care are being called upon to enable individuals residing in these facilities to receive the services they need.

O’Connell and Aronowitz has experience in helping a wide range of homecare clients navigate the increasingly complex web of federal and state laws and regulations, as well as the billing issues posed by commercial payors, and making sure that they are up to date and aware of the latest trends and developments. We have decades of experience with professional licensing, certificate of need, and establishing professional organizations; with tax and related rules regarding for-profit, not-for-profit and tax-exempt health care providers; with Medicare, Medicaid and commercial payor billing, documentation requirements, and reimbursement audits; with closed payor networks and exclusive provider relationships; with mergers, acquisitions and sales; and with virtually all other health or business-related matters that homecare providers may face.

Homecare, in its many settings and forms, is increasingly recognized as critical to improving outcomes and reducing costs. Let our attorneys in health law, help guide you through the challenges of successfully competing in these markets.
