SLPs are often underutilized in home health (HH) care settings despite the value they bring to patient care and outcomes. With the recent expansion of Medicare’s home health value-based purchasing (HHVBP) model, the need for SLPs will only increase. This webinar will discuss the critical role SLPs play in the reimbursement structure of HH, in achieving the objectives of HHVBP, and as part of the interprofessional care team.
