The federal government has agreed to pay $1.1 billion to help millions of people who are eligible for Medicare get care at their homes.
The $1 billion, announced Friday, is part of a new deal with the federal government to help pay for the cost of Medicare Advantage, the health insurance program for seniors.
The agreement also includes $600 million for home health aides and $1 million to improve nursing home care.
The deal is expected to be signed by President Donald Trump.
The deal follows the announcement of an agreement in January between the White House and House Democrats to help cover $7.4 billion in uncompensated care costs that were incurred by insurers in the aftermath of the Affordable Care Act.
President Donald Trump and Congressional leaders announced a $1 trillion healthcare deal for Medicare and Medicaid in January to help people pay the bill for the Affordable Healthcare Act.
That deal included $7 billion to expand coverage to about 10 million people, including a new $1,000 discount for people who earn less than 400 percent of the poverty level.
At the time, the deal with Democrats called for $5.7 billion for Medicare Advantage and $500 million for Medicaid, though some of those programs are still operating under the ACA.
