Pros and Cons:

As companies have consolidated, they have also focused on providing specialized services. Medicare, Medicaid, other government third-party payers and contracted private insurance or commercial payers are popular in the industry. Medicaid reimbursements, the second-largest source of industry revenue, have also been subject to federal reductions. Home care providers have benefited from an aging population. The healthcare reform legislation has provided numerous benefits and drawbacks to home care. This high demand for staff is projected to increase nurses' and physical therapists' ability to command higher wages and benefits. Healthcare reform has expanded access to insurance for some patients, but many states have not expanded access to federal healthcare. A large portion of revenue for medical services provided by this industry comes from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. Increased competition has led to some consolidation among the smaller regional brands. Internal competition is increasing via recruiting skilled and qualified employees. As demand for services grows due to the increase in the senior target demographic, the number of enterprises is expected to grow. The franchise business model will continue to gain momentum, attracting entrants. Competition may drive down prices charged for non-medical services, pressuring profit margins. The number of adults older than 65 is expected to grow, accelerating industry growth.

Opportunities and Growth:

Despite continued staffing challenges, home care is on the rise. Several emerging trends will define that ascent in the year ahead. Some of those trends will revolve around home care’s role in new care delivery models designed to treat higher-acuity patients. Others will have to do with shifts in the home care market itself and the broader U.S. economy, which is still recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 virus....Home Health Care News offers its top home care predictions for the coming 12 months below.
