The Home Care Association of Florida (HCAF) submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Sunday, September 8 in response to the federal agency's 2020 proposed rule to update the Home Health Prospective Payment System and implement the Patient-Driven Groupings Model.
In our comments, HCAF addressed aspects of the proposal, which we believe would threaten access to home health care in Florida. Specifically, we recommend that CMS:
Withdraw the proposed 8.01% behavioral adjustment reduction in payment;
Withdraw the proposed reduction and eventual termination of the Request for Anticipated Payment model; and,
Revise or withdraw the proposed Notice of Admission requirement.
