Federal Short-Term Spending Measure Contains Good News for Home Care and Hospice

Posted on Monday, October 5, 2020

Last Wednesday, the U.S. Senate approved a Continuing Resolution (CR) that is a short-term funding measure to avoid a shutdown of the federal government through December. Contained in this CR is details about how CMS is going to recoup payment of the Medicare Accelerated and Advanced Payments.

“The new plan will delay recoupment for one full year and stretch the recoupment schedule across 29 months. Recoupment per claim would be set at 25 percent for the first 11 months, then 50% for the following six months. The interest rate would also be dropped from 10.25 percent to 4 percent.”

The CR provides extension for two HCBS programs: Spousal Impoverishment protections and the Medicaid Money Follows the Person program.
