artifact description
This column describes the criteria prerequisites for Medicare coverage of home care, including definitions of homebound status, the requirements for physician certification, and the availability of Medicare managed care programs. As the national cost of home care increased, regulations to rein in costs were enacted. The effects of these changes are discussed in detail.
