Medicare Home Health Summary

This survey was conducted by the GAPNA Health Affairs Committee, September 1, 2018.

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are authorized Part B Medicare providers. They order and bill for performing and interpreting diagnostic tests within their scope of practice and certify patients’ eligibility for skilled rehabilitation services.

Despite recognition of NPs’ scope of practice, current Medicare home health regulations pose unnecessary restrictions to patient access and risks associated with care coordination.

In order to better understand the impact of these restrictions GAPNA conducted a study to assess the effect on NPs’ patients and their practices.
