Home Health Care
The U.S. home heath care industry is comprised of over 20,000 service providers, a staggering increase from 1963, when only 1,100 home health care providers existed. Estimated annual revenue for these firms, taxable and tax-exempt combined, tops $36 billion annually. Home health care firms deliver services to more than 7.6 million individuals, or roughly 2.8 percent of the U.S. population. Of all recipients, 68.6 percent are over the age of 65, and 62.3 percent are women.
