Value Based Purchasing in Home Health Whitepaper
In today’s ever-changing world of healthcare, home health agencies have become accustomed to evolving their business models, and everyday operations, to remain compliant and improve reimbursements. One recently implemented program from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Home Health Value Based Purchasing (HH-VBP), aims to help achieve better health, better care and lower costs. Home health agencies can expect a shift in Medicare reimbursement rates over the life of the program. Have questions? We have answers. The following guide will walk you through HH-VBP and how you can prepare for success.
Home Health Pre-Claim Review Demonstration
The pre-claim review demonstration is a CMS program that requests that provisional affirmation of coverage is submitted for review before a fnal claim
is submitted for payment. Pre-claim review helps ensure applicable coverage, payment, and coding rules are met before the final claim is submitted.
Fortunately, no new documentation is required with pre-claim review. Home health agencies submit the same information they currently do for payment, just earlier in the process. Pre-claim review is active in Illinois, and is slated to roll out in Florida, Texas, Michigan, and Massachusetts.
