The Choose Home Care (CHC) Act of 2021 was recently introduced in both the House (H.R. 5514) and Senate (S. 2562).

The Choose
Home bill would incentivize home health agencies to provide SNF-equivalent nursing in the home, by
providing Medicare beneficiaries with new, extended home care services.The bill has the support of the home health sector, while it has drawn opposition from the skilled nursing facility (SNF) sector. Other post-acute sectors - Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) and Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCH) are still considering the issue.
