CRNPs to Initiate Home Health Orders

By Robin Kaufman

We have exciting news in Maryland!

CRNPs will be able to initiate home health orders independently for Medicare patients as of January 1, 2020. I am currently working on disseminating information on these changes and changes to billing for home health.

The President of the Nurse Practitioner Association of Maryland, Beverly Lang, and I are planning to have a joint meeting in late January or early February for our membership to get this important info out as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation is applying for grants for education and data collection in our state. They hope to provide research about decreasing hospital admissions with the implementation of this program.
