APTA has prepared a comprehensive summary of the 2012 Home Health Prospective Payment System (HH PPS) final rule issued October 31, which decreases Medicare payments to home health agencies (HHAs) approximately 2.31% for calendar year 2012. The summary explains in detail the various provisions that result in payment decreases, case-mix revisions to case-mix weights, revisions to technical definitions, and a change to Medicare's face-to-face encounter requirement. In addition, the summary includes tables that illustrate the case mix adjustments and updated 60-day episode payment amount for both quality-reporting and non-reporting HHAs.
