AAHCM Applauds Results of Year 4 Medicare Independence at Home (IAH) Demonstration

American Academy of Home Care Medicine

The Academy is pleased to share that the Independence at Home (IAH) Demonstration saved Medicare approximately $33 million in Year 4, or about $384 per beneficiary per month (PBPM). This follows savings from Years 1-3 that, when combined with Year 4, amount to about $63 million in savings and high-quality care for Medicare. These results highlight the value of a home-based primary care (HBPC) model to serve complex, frail elders, with an emphasis on a high-touch and high-tech mobile team care.
