Last month, CMS issued a temporary reprieve in rolling out the proposed HHGM with the Final Rule for 2018. However, CMS was very clear that it was only a temporary delay so they could review all 1300 comments which they received. As a result, our industry has come together to develop a unified approach to HHGM. This approach is a combination of work done by National Association for Homecare and Hospice (NAHC), Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare (PQHH), Elevating Home, Council of State Home Care Associations.
