CMS is required to publish the final home health payment rule prior to Nov. 1 each year. VNAA anticipates that the rule will be released the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 30. We are closely watching to see whether CMS moves forward with the case mix adjustment and the home health value-based purchasing program as proposed. VNAA will alert members as soon as the rule is released. We encourage you to join us for a special Public Policy Town Hall to focus on the final rule Thursday, Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. ET. All affiliate members are welcome to participate. Register here.
