Everything you need to know about Medicare 2016 Home Health PPS Final Rule

Medicare is initiating one of the biggest changes in how it reimburses home health agencies since the prospective payment system began. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) 2016 Home Health Prospective Payment System final rule will result in a 1.4 percent reimbursement cut in HHA rates starting Jan. 1.

Wondering what measures made the VBP cut? Want to know the most pressing problems you’ll face with the measures? Would you like to find out which states will start VBP first? Struggling to achieve the quality and outcomes data correctly? Want to achieve certain quality goals as part of obtaining referrals from hospitals, SNFs, and ACOs?

As Medicare payments transition from volume to value, care quality issues in home health agencies have come under the microscope and could turn your reimbursement upside-down — and run significant numbers of agencies out of business if they don’t know the ropes.

Looking for critical strategies for coping with current and future Medicare reimbursement cuts?

Don’t worry – the 2016 Home Health Prospective Payment System Final Rule Handbook brings you a thorough analysis of the revised PPS.
