125.005 Venipuncture as a Qualifying Home Health Benefit: The Texas Medical Association requests that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Medicare home health benefit not restrict access to venipuncture services to homebound patients with complex medical problems. TMA will call on the American Medical Association to assist in identifying other medically necessary exceptions to this venipuncture exclusion (Amended Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care, p 87, A-98; amended CHSO Rep. 1-A-08; amended CHSO Rep. 1-A-18).
