Home Infusion Providers Overview. Home infusion is playing a growing role in the evolving health care landscape, offering an alternative to inpatient therapy. Home infusion includes administering medication, fluids or nutrients intravenously (IV) in the convenience of a patient’s home or at an alternate site of care, meeting an individual’s specified needs. More than an estimated two million patients receive home infusion therapy annually.
The $12 billion home infusion market is estimated to be growing 5-7% annually. The highly-fragmented market’s four largest providers hold more than 40% market share.
There is a shift in the site of care from administering injectable specialty drugs in physician offices to hospital infusion centers. These costs can be much higher than the same care in a physician’s office. The growing trend of delivering infusion therapy in the home can be more cost-effective and deliver the care needed by patients.
The U.S. Congress passed the Medicare Home Infusion Therapy Access Act of 2017, providing for a transitional benefit payment, beginning January 1, 2019, for Medicare Part B home infusion services, which will continue until the commencement of a permanent payment structure under the 21st Century Cures Act, currently expected to take effect in 2021.
