News and Updates
In July 2017, CMS issued a proposal to update Medicare's home health payment system for effectuation in CY 2019. The proposed Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) would have eliminated the alignment between therapy visits and reimbursement, instead, basing payment upon patient characteristics – admission source, episode timing, clinical grouping, functional level, and comorbidities. Due to strong advocacy efforts of APTA and our members, CMS is not moving forward with bthe HHGM at this time.
