The Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model was a 5-year demonstration that ended in 2020. This demonstration was active in 9 states. CMS has announced that HHVBP will be implemented nationwide effective January 2022. There are some slight changes to the measures that will be utilized in the program moving forward. As a demonstration, HHVBP, was very effective at saving the Medicare system millions. This webinar will review the Home Health 2022 Proposed Rule regarding the HHVBP nationwide rollout and make suggestions for agencies to smoothly transition into this model. Statistics and experiences from the demonstration will be reviewed. HHVBP rewards HHAs that provide better quality care per outcomes, while agencies with poor outcomes could see reductions in payments.
