CMS Proposes Payment Changes For Medicare HHAs in 2015

Yesterday, CMS announced proposed changes to the Medicare home health prospective payment system (HH PPS) for calendar year (CY) 2015. In the rule, CMS projects that Medicare payments to home health agencies in CY 2015 will be reduced by 0.30 percent, or -$58 million based on proposed policies. The proposed decrease reflect the effects of the 2.2 percent home health payment update percentage ($427 million increase) and the rebasing adjustment to the national, standardized 60-day episode payment rate, the national per-visit payment rates, and the non-routine medical supplies (NRS) conversion factor ($485 million decrease).
