Hospital at Home Act Introduced


January 31, 2023

Assembly Bill 4914, introduced in the New Jersey Assembly on December 5, 2022, would authorize the New Jersey Department of Health to establish a program to permit a hospital to provide acute care services to a covered person outside of the hospital’s licensed facility and within a private residence designated by the covered person. New Jersey’s program would need to be consistent with the provisions of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Acute Hospital Care at Home Program. Any hospital with a waiver to operate or approved to participate in CMS’ Acute Hospital Care at Home Program before this Bill’s effective date would be permitted to continue to operate in the same manner as previously permitted under federal law and would be integrated into the New Jersey program.
