CMS is hosting a Special Open Door Forum (SODF) call on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EST to provide home health agencies (HHAs) and other interested parties with additional information on the new “Pay-for-Reporting Performance Requirement” described in the CY 2015 Home Health Final Rule. The first 12-month reporting period for the new Quality Assessments (QAO) measure begins on July 1, 2015. HHA compliance will potentially affect the Annual Payment Update (APU) for CY 2017.
The session follows up on information presented during the Open Door Forum on November 12, 2014 and will include a review of the content and format of the new QAO Historical Performance Reports that will distributed to HHAs for information purposes only by the end of June.
