Join Bill Dombi, President, and Mary Carr, VP of Regulatory Affairs, to discuss the CY2023 home health FINAL rule, which presents serious concerns for the home health community.
CMS originally proposed a 7.69% permanent rate adjustment based on the conclusion that HHAs were overpaid in 2020 and 2021 due to provider behavior changes in coding and services provided. The Final Rule finalized a 2023 rate reduction at 3.925%. This represents one-half of the 7.85% rate reduction that CMS calculated as warranted under its methodology.
CMS explains lower adjustment is applied because “we recognize the potential hardship of implementing the full -7.85 percent permanent adjustment in a single year.”
