Home Infusion & Nursing

It is a priority for HOMELINK to continuously engage and review home infusion claims to ensure appropriate, cost-effective care.

Home infusion therapy imparts significant cost savings compared to the traditional infusion setting of a hospital or infusion suite. Where hospitalization costs upwards of $1,500 to $2,500 per day, the average cost of home infusion is $150 to $200 per day.

One study found infusion therapy provided at alternate sites of care, such as the home, is significantly more cost-effective than infusion therapy provided at other sites of care such as the hospital, resulting in savings for both the patient and the health plan of up to 60%. Additionally, potential savings accrued by preventing hospital-acquired infections was significant. These types of infections are directly related to $28 to $45 billion a year in hospital costs.

Home Infusion Therapy is used for the following medical purposes

  • Antibiotic
  • Anti-coagulation  
  • Anti-emetics
  • Anti-haemophilic 
  • Chemotherapy
  • Enteral nutrition   
  • Hydration
  • Pain management   
  • Inotropic

HOMELINK’s nationwide network of home health providers covers the many needs of patients in the home. From nursing, in-home therapies, and IV services to medical supplies and pharmacy services, our patient care coordinators ensure medical treatment is functionally based and medically necessary.

Backed by a clinical team of licensed nursing professionals, HOMELINK’s processes are designed to control over-utilization, procurement, and billing integrity — all designed to provide you low cost.

HOMELINK’s Clinical Review Process provides the most appropriate care to the patient in the most efficient manner while reducing cost. This is accomplished through proactive review of the patient’s needs conducted by seasoned, licensed nursing professionals. Clinical oversight begins the moment of referral intake and moves through the continuum of cares.

Member’s acuity level determines the frequency of step-down evaluations, review of patient notes, and comprehensive evaluations by their assigned Clinical Review nurse.   

Level 1

Patients requiring the highest level of detailed action.

Level 2

Patients requiring continuous evaluation. Typically individuals have completed rehabilitation and are moving into stabilized living.

Level 3

Patients requiring periodic evaluation. Patients are in a home setting.

Level 4

Patients with ongoing care needs that cannot be lowered due to maximized efficiencies or other circumstances. May include patients with ongoing complex care needs.

We emphasize the home setting as much as possible for infusion to contain costs. Utilizing clinically-designed procedures covering the broad scope of infusion therapies, our focus is to ensure patients remain compliant, desired outcomes, and costs are contained.
