Rep. Debra Heffernan has introduced a bill that will set a minimum Medicaid reimbursement rate for home health care nursing services that are paid for by Medicaid-contracted organizations. The rate shall be at least equal to the rate set by the Division of Medicaid for equivalent services. Home care nurses and aides give Delawareans with disabilities the option to remain at home with their families and prevents unnecessary use of higher-cost hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities.
