【#ARTICLES|#Medicare】 UnitedHealth to buy LHC Group for $5.4 billion

⭐️Health insurers and other payers have been emphasizing home-based care more in recent years, a trend fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic. They expect this type of care to remain popular as the U.S. population ages and more people become eligible for Medicare.


⭐️Patients generally prefer home health care. Technology improvements also allow for more care to be provided at home, and payers see the practice as a good alternative to expensive stays in hospitals or care centers when possible.


⭐️Health insurers also have been emphasizing more regular care for their customers in order to keep people healthy and out of hospitals.
