Home Health Care
Description: Home health care includes services received due to a health problem or condition. These services may be medical (e.g., physical therapy; checking temperature, blood pressure, and pulse and respiration rates; or helping to give medications) or personal (e.g., cleaning, repairs, cooking, or companionship). For those persons using home health care, the Home Health section of the MEPS-HC questionnaire obtains information on the types of health care workers providing home health services, reasons for home health care, the nature of home health services provided, frequency of visits, length per visit, and duration of visits.
Data tables: For tables specifically on home health care and expenditures, go to the Table 9 series in the Expenditures by Health Care Service tables of the HC Summary Data Tables.
Analytic tools: You can use the MEPSnet/HC query tool to generate your own estimates for home health care. Select the Home Health Care variables within the Utilization, Expenditures, and SOP Variable Group of the Variable Selection Query Tab.
Publications: Publications are listed in reverse chronological order (most recent first).
