Since most home care RN's have no knowledge of agency reimbursement rates, you need to join Home Health associations or trade magazines who share info regarding commercial insurance payers. Pay rates vary per regional Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) code, service admitting client: SN, PT, ST, etc, overhead costs, labor costs, insurance, type of visit: hourly, shift etc.
