Success breeds success. The Home Health Value Based Purchasing model program proved to be one of CMS Innovation Center’s most successful pilots conducted over five years in nine states. To replicate the cost savings and improvements in care under HHVBP, CMS is rolling out value-based purchasing to all home health agencies in January 2023.
The new value-based purchasing program will be a complex reimbursement model that combines performance metrics against your own baseline and against the performance of similar-sized agencies across the country. Because of the complexity of the model, CMS has accounted for time for preparing during this pre-implementation year (2022), during which providers who were not in a HHVBP pilot state can provide training and resources to staff.
