What Do the Recent Legal Victories Mean to the Home Care and Hospice Industry?
Over the past few months NAHC has won two major victories because of legal actions that it has initiated. The first helped do away with the “physician narrative” in the Face to Face regulations promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services. The second invalidated a rule promulgated by the Department of Labor that would change the way overtime is computed for home health agencies and abolish the companionship and live-in exceptions to the Fair Labor Standards Law. These are huge victories that affect home care and hospice agencies’ internal operations. No victory is permanent and we have to keep up the fight both against the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Labor. Congress is standing by ready to introduce legislation and help us.
