Land Introduces Bill Letting Government Link with Non-government Home Health Providers

Assemblyman Bruce Land (D-1st)

By Press Release

TRENTON – Recognizing that collaborations are essential to providing effective, timely patient care, Assemblyman R. Bruce Land (D-1st) released the following statement March 8 in response to a bill that would allow a county or municipal government that is the licensed operator of a home health agency to contract with a non-government entity licensed as a home health agency to provide direct services, administration, and financial services on behalf of the government home health agency.
The bill (A-3207), of which Land is primary sponsor, stipulates that the government home health agency would still maintain ultimate control over key governing responsibilities. It cleared the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee March 7, 2019:
 “Ultimately, patients are at the heart of this legislation. By allowing government operated home health agencies to partner with non-government home health agencies, patients will receive crucial services in a timely manner. This type of flexibility can assist these government agencies in fulfilling their missions of providing quality health care to residents,”    Land stated.
