The Value Of In-Home Evaluations In Advancing CMS’ Medicare Goals

To print this article, all you need is to be registered or login on

In-home evaluations (IHEs) are early preventive health risk
assessments within the home setting that are conducted by
physicians and advance practice providers (APPs). IHEs provide a
cost-effective way to identify and meet the medical and nonmedical
needs of vulnerable beneficiaries in their own homes and
communities to impact health outcomes.

IHEs are an important touchpoint for holistically and
comprehensively assessing individuals in their own environment,
gathering information on social drivers of health, and, whenever
possible, connecting them to needed community resources and
community providers for ongoing care and care coordination.

In a white paper prepared in partnership with Signify Health,
Manatt Health demonstrates how IHEs deliver value consistent with
the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS)
strategic goals for the Medicare program. The paper offers
recommendations for how CMS could extend that value across the
Medicare program.
