Description
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule (CMS-1711-P) that updates the Medicare Home Health Prospective Payment System (HH PPS) rates and wage index for calendar year (CY) 2020. The proposed HH PPS policies included in the rule would result in a 1.3 percent increase ($250 million) in payments to HHAs in CY 2020 and also sets forth routine updates to the home infusion therapy payment rates for CY 2020 and proposes payment provisions for home infusion therapy services for CY 2021 and subsequent years.
