Report Overview

The U.S. home healthcare market was valued at USD 132.7 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.49% from 2022 to 2030. The growing geriatric population and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases along with favorable reimbursement for home healthcare equipment are key drivers for the U.S. market. The recent advancements in technology & cost-effectivity of home healthcare services are likely to drive the market growth during the forecast period. The U.S. geriatric population has been growing rapidly over the past decade. As per the U.S. Census Bureau, 54 million adults in the U.S. are aged 65 years & above, accounting for 16.5% of the country’s population. The geriatric population typically prefers to stay at home as they age instead of in a medical facility.

Moreover, older patients opt for home healthcare services following surgery or treatment at the hospital to reduce their hospital stay, resulting in higher demand for home healthcare services. Administration of medications at home for chronic disorders offers benefits, such as faster recovery, better experience, fewer complications, and reduced cost, which is boosting the demand for home care services in the U.S.

Medicare provides reimbursement for home health services such as intermittent skilled nursing care, care provided by a home health aide, and therapy under either Part A or Part B, depending on the circumstances.

However, government organizations are taking measures to get service providers to focus more on the clinical characteristics of the patients, to eliminate the use of therapy service thresholds. For instance, a major change to the reimbursement system in decades is the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) that was implemented in January 2020, which is reshaping the reimbursement of home healthcare services.

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The initial phase of the pandemic witnessed complete shutdowns and movement restrictions leading to a shortage of medical equipment for use at homes as well as hospitals.

The increase in demand for home healthcare equipment during the pandemic will have a positive impact on suppliers & distributors.

Restrictions on healthcare services and fear of COVID-19 infection have resulted in increased adoption of home health services across the nation, as it helps treat patients with professional support at home itself, avoiding risk of infection.

Healthcare facilities are providing care programs such as hospital-at-home and SNF-at-home that is reducing the stress on facilities and saving healthcare expenditure for patients. The U.S Government is undertaking initiatives to expand access to home healthcare.


The concept of home healthcare has evolved over the years and is likely to play an integral role in future healthcare systems in the U.S. Over the past few years, there have been rapid advancements in technologies used by home healthcare providers. Electronic visit verification is an upcoming technology, facilitating verification of caregiver appointments, scheduling, & cancellation, and avoiding no-show home appointments.

The verification includes information about the patient and home healthcare professional, including location, date, & time of service required. According to the social services department, by 2023, all home healthcare service providers in the U.S. must implement electronic visit verification, as per recent regulations.

Component Insights

Based on components, the services segment held the largest market share in terms of revenue in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a 7.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period.

Increasing focus of manufacturers on introducing innovative equipment, availability of reimbursement, and increasing at-home treatment/diagnostic efficiency are factors expected to contribute to the fastest growth of the equipment segment during the forecast period.

Increasing home healthcare agencies, rising demand for home healthcare services, and favorable health reimbursement policies are major factors contributing to the segment growth.
