Confessions of an HHA Owner: ‘CMS is Trying to Put Agencies Like Mine Out of Business’

POSTED ON MONDAY, August 31, 2020

Home health agencies have always had to operate in waves of never-ending change, but with recent changes small agencies are having a hard time staying afloat.

CMS finalized its plan to phase out RAPs in its 2020 home health payment rule, creating a new payment plan in which they reduce pre-payment levels for existing agencies this year, with the goal of eliminating them by 2021.

“In this latest installment of the Confessions series, HHCN spoke with a home health agency owner who sounded off on cash flow challenges — and how it sometimes feels like CMS is pushing agencies like his out of business. The subject of this interview — a registered nurse and long-time home health executive who launched his own agency in 2019 — is kept anonymous so he can speak without fear of retribution.”
