CMS releases rule with no HHGM for Home health
CMS has issued the 2018 Payment rule and it does not include the proposal for a new payment model in 2019 known as HHGM. CMS indicates that based on the comments received, it is not finalizing the HHGM proposal at this time.
This is not comparable to withdrawing the proposal, however, it is a clear victory for the home health community that took all action to stop the rule from becoming final.
Thank you to each and every one of you that took the time to comment. The rule can be found here
