Conclusions
 All-Inclusive
management of medically
complex, homebound patients can result
in substantial savings compared to similar
Medicare beneficiaries.
 Independence At Home can provide
funding for housecall practices caring for
medically complex patients by
guaranteeing a share in those savings.
