Description

The Journal investigates the practice of home health care companies to prolong patients' recovery. "Across the U.S., elderly patients are becoming economic jackpots for home-care companies, thanks to open-ended reimbursement by Medicare. What once was seen as one of the government's smartest initiatives for the elderly is increasingly viewed as a program out of control. Costs are soaring. Federal fraud investigators are widening their inquiries into billing practices. And Washington policy makers are hunting for ways to revise the fast-growing program to keep it from busting the already-strained Medicare budget."
