2022 Home Health Payment Final Rule
The 2022 Home Health Payment Final Rule is out. It contains changes to PDGM Case-Mix Calculations, Annual Payment Updates, Changes to the Conditions of Participation and most of all Value-Based Purchasing. Nine states have completed four years of the Value-Based Purchasing Demonstration and Medicare has seen benefits to the program both in the improved quality of care to patients as well as savings to the Medicare trust fund. 41 additional states as well as US Territories now will need to quickly come up to speed since they have less than three months before your process measures are compared to your historical data.
Understand The PDGM Case-mix changes and how they affect your agency.
Verbalize the Value Based Purchasing Measures that your agency will be using to compete for payment
Discuss the changes to the Conditions of Participation
