VA To Pay Non-Contract Providers Using Medicare Payment Models

According to NAHC, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has started issuing notices to inform home health providers of the VA’s revised payment methodology for SNF services. Starting on October 1, 2014, the VA will require an Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) to be completed to generate a health insurance prospective payment system (HIPPS) code to reimburse non-contracted home health agencies for skilled home health services using the Medicare home health prospective payment system (HHPPS). The VA will continue to pay a per diem rate for non-contracted hospice providers.
