Another Ominous Home Health Payment Threat That’s ‘Flying Under the Radar’

Posted Wednesday, July 26, 2023

The FY 2024 proposed home health payment rule certainly has everyone talking.  Many people have not really thought about the “most impactful for home health providers moving forward” – according to VitalCaring President Luke James – which is the temporary payment adjustments.

“I think it’s flying a little under the radar for some people,” James told Home Health Care News. “Certainly not for people who are heavily engaged in advocacy efforts – like NAHC, PQHH and others that are keeping a close eye on this – but this is something that everyone is going to have to come together on like never before.”

CMS believes that home health providers were overpaid in 2020, 2021 and 2022 to the tune of $3.4 billion. They did not implement all the calculated permanent adjustments by 2023, so its calculations will show an additional overpayment in 2023 once the agency has the full year worth of data.
