Home Health Payment in 2014

CMS to Cut Home Health Payments by $290 Million in 2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Thursday proposed cutting payments to home health agencies by 1.5% in 2014, or $290 million based on several policies and adjustments. 
“The proposed decrease reflects the effects of the 2.4 percent home health payment update percentage ($460 million increase), the rebasing adjustments to the national, standardized 60-day episode payment rate, the national per-visit payment rates, and the non-routine medical supplies (NRS) conversion factor ($650 million decrease), and the effects of ICD-9-CM coding adjustments ($100 million decrease),” says CMS.
In 2012, Medicare spent about $18.2 billion on approximately 3.5 million beneficiaries who received home health services, CMS estimates.
CMS intends the changes to the Medicare home health prospective payment system (HH PPS) to “foster greater efficiency, flexibility, payment accuracy, and improved quality.”
The rule also proposes routine updates to the home health payment rates, such as updating the payment rates by the HH PPS payment update percentage and updating the home health wage index for 2014. 
Read the proposed rule at the Federal Register.
