“For this course, I have chosen to focus on the policy Medicare and Medicaid Program: Conditions of Participation for Home Health Agencies. I want to increase the guidelines required for home healthcare agencies to ensure consistency across the board. In the end, the goal is to provide safe and quality care to all home health patients. U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul represents the 10th district of the state of Texas, where I reside. He has previously participated in matters related to healthcare, so I think he would best respond to my letter. I want to discuss the inaccuracies and variability in this current policy. Because of a lack of universal guidelines across the board, some home healthcare agencies aren’t properly regulated. This puts patients and their families at unnecessary risk. This lack of uniformity also increases the prices of healthcare as medicare and medicaid won’t cover all expenses (Roberts et al., 2021).  I am hoping that Mr. McCaul will understand the need to protect our citizens and ensure that they are well taken care of. I am also hoping to prevent unnecessary lawsuits and deaths. Varying policies are a hinderance to the delivery of safe and quality care (Hignett et al., 2018). I will urge him to take action before serious complications arise.
