CMS Publishes HHPPS Updates for CY 2010

The August 6, 2009 Federal Register sets forth an update to the home health prospective payment system for calendar year 2010.  In addition, CMS proposes changes to the outlier policy and a submission of OASIS data as a condition of payment.  This  rule also proposes changes to the language clarifying “skilled services” and seeks input on physician/patient interaction associated with the home health plan of care.

It is important that the industry comment on these proposed changes. Comments are due to CMS by September 28, 2009 at 5PM. Please send a copy of your comments to the Alliance:
