Nurse Practitioner Home Health Referrals

Thanks to new waivers issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can now:

  • Order home health services
  • Sign a home health plan of care
  • Certify patient eligibility for Medicare home health services

For patients, this means that your normal provider - if you see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant - can order any home health services you need. It also gives providers and patients more flexibility so they can practice social distancing more easily.
