Bethany Stadalman, of Douglas County Visiting Nurses, Rehabilitation and Hospice Care, keeps a watchful eye on Clyde Rice, 75, as the two work on Rice's balance during a therapy session Friday, April 15, 2011, in his Lawrence home. Under new requirements that took effect April 1, a Medicare beneficiary must have a face-to-face meeting with a doctor 90 days before or 30 days after starting in-home health care services in order for the home health agencies to be reimbursed. Rice, who has Medicare, saw his doctor about two weeks ago.
