OAAPN is excited to announce that effective March 7, 2021 the Home Health Emergency Rule will become permanent!
Our reimbursement team has diligently and successfully worked with Ohio Medicaid to make this a permanent rule. Home health services will now be reimbursable if a qualifying advance practice registered nurse certifies the need for home health services. Updating Medicaid regulations is congruent with federal changes made by the CARES Act.
OAAPN is continually working to elevate all APRNs to work at the top of their scope of practice and to provide access to safe, quality care for all Ohioans.
