After perhaps the hottest year on record for mergers and acquisitions, the home care, home health and hospice industry could lose some firepower in 2022.
Mike Moran, partner at M&A Healthcare Advisors, told McKnight’s Home Care Daily Pulse increased federal funding could encourage private equity buyers to cut deals. He said the 10% increase in Federal Medical Assistance Percentages helped spur some deals last year.
“We had early success this year with two Medicaid-driven home care agencies in Texas,” Moran said. “I don’t know that there would have been as much interest if there wasn’t that push from a national level to support these companies and prop up these businesses.”
