1.Home Healthcare Case: Given what you have learned about the accessibility and financing of home care services, are such services as readily available to other consumers as they were to Joan and Jerry? No, they are available to all consumers since there is no federal regulation that calls for this. They are regulated by each state making them un inform in coverage.
