CY 2020 Home Health Prospective Payment System Rate Update; Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Model; Home Health Quality
Reporting Requirements; and Home Infusion Therapy Requirements
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.
