Home health care has increasingly become an integral component of the health care continuum for clients. The concept of providing care to a client in the home setting seems relatively straightforward. What has grown increasingly complex is the reimbursement structure under which services are provided. Adding to the complexity are the frequent changes in the regulations that govern the reimbursement for home care. This paper describes the current state of the third-party regulations that govern the reimbursement for the client with diabetes receiving home care.
