  • Get the Latest on the Future of Payment—And the Now of Home Health

    Are you ready for the future of payment—both near-term and down the road? APTA is ready to help you stay up to speed.

    The association offers 2 opportunities to learn about the payment landscape in 2018 and beyond: one focused on the bigger picture and another that zeroes in on changes to home health services.

    For the big picture, be sure to sign up for "The Shift to Value-Based Payment: What You Need to Know Now," a live webinar set for January 18, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm EST. The interactive session, led by APTA staff experts, will focus on participants' questions on what Medicare's shift toward value-based payment means for providers. The program is configured as a "flipped classroom"—participants need to register in advance, review a prerecorded presentation, and be ready for live interaction at the actual session. Best of all, it's free to APTA members.

    PTs and PTAs looking for more specific information on changes to home health rules can download an audio recording of a December 11, 2017, webinar focused on new home health conditions of participation set to go into effect January 13, 2018. The session, conducted by APTA staff and representatives from APTA's Home Health Section, sheds light on the practice implications of the new participation rules. And like the January 18 webinar, it's free. To download, visit APTA's Medicare Payment and Policies for Home Health webpage and click on the "Webinar Recording" link dated 12/11/17.
