New Hampshire has a Title XX program for in-home care for the chronically ill as an example of how home care services can function for the chronically ill. Yet there is a debates about the efficacy of home care for the chronically ill as illustrated by the paper "Care of the chronically ill at home: an unresolved dilemma in health policy for the United States." In it, the authors "explain why home care has never become the cornerstone for caring for the chronically ill."
