The National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) is advocating for expanded Medicare coverage for home infusion services and supplies While the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003 provided some coverage for infusion medications under the Part D program there remains a payment gap for the necessary services and supplies to ensure home infusion care is offered in a safe and coordinated manner Currently most home infusion providers bill patients directly for the non-covered items however many patients do not have the resources to pay out-of-pocket and therefore cannot access treatment at home
