U.S. Post-acute Care Market Size

U.S. Post-Acute Care Market

Mounting healthcare needs among the elderly population is a major factor driving the market expansion. In the upcoming years, the aging population is anticipated to increase significantly. There are more than 56 million Americans aged 65 and above, which constitutes around 16.9% of the population, according to the United States Census Bureau. The increasing number of health and home care service providers as well as elderly care programs are aiming to meet this growing need, which is estimated to positively influence the market value.

Continuous changes in reimbursement policies to impede industry progression

Organizations such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are unable to plan solutions to secure their long-term success due to continuous modifications in reimbursement policies. Additionally, Medicare does not cover expenditures associated with long-term nursing care, assisted living facilities, or custodial care under the insurance program for individuals over the age of 65, which may limit sector expansion. However, government authorities are taking measures to make the necessary services available to American residents to help overcome this market limitation as the demand for post-acute care services increases among the aging population.
