Home Health Agencies Data 2014

The Home Health Agency Utilization and Payment Public Use File (herein referred to as “Home Health Agency PUF”) presents information on services provided to Medicare beneficiaries by home health agencies.  The Home Health Agency PUF contains information on utilization, payment (Medicare payment and standard payment), submitted charges, and demographic and chronic condition indicators organized by CMS Certification Number (6-digit provider identification number), Home Health Resource Group (HHRG), and state of service. This PUF is based on information from CMS’s Chronic Conditions Data Warehouse (CCW) data files. The data in the Home Health Agency PUF covers calendar year 2014 and contains 100% final-action (i.e., all claim adjustments have been resolved) home health agency institutional claims for the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) population.

Although the Home Health Agency PUF has a wealth of payment and utilization information about home health services, the dataset also has a number of limitations. The information presented in this file does not indicate the quality of care provided by individual home health agencies. The file only contains cost and utilization information. Additionally, the data are not risk adjusted and thus do not account for differences in the underlying severity of disease of patient populations treated by providers. For additional limitations, please review the methodology document available below.

The Home Health Agency PUF contains four tables: 1) aggregated information by provider, 2) aggregated information by provider and HHRG, 3) aggregated information by HHRG, and 4) aggregated information by HHRG by state.

Data are available in Microsoft Excel.
