SB17-091 - Allow Medicaid Home Health Services In Community

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning allowing medicaid home health services to be provided in the community, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

Under current law, for some clients, home health services under the medicaid program may only be provided in the client's residence. The bill removes the location restriction for home health services to comply with changes to federal medicaid rules that allow for services to be delivered in the community as well as the residence.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
