CMS to Host a Special Call for Home Health Providers
Pay-for-Reporting Performance Requirement Discussion.
CMS has scheduled a Special Open Door Forum (SODF) call to provide home health agencies (HHAs) and other interested parties with additional information on the new “Pay-for-Reporting Performance Requirement” described in the CY2015 Home Health Final Rule.
CMS established the minimum submission threshold for the number of OASIS assessments that each HHA must submit in order to receive the full annual payment update. Beginning in CY 2015, the initial compliance threshold will be 70 percent. HHAs that do not meet this will be subject to a two percentage point reduction to their market basket update for CY 2017.
The Special Open Door Forum will be held on:
Tuesday, June 2, 2015
1:30pm – 2:30pm ET
Conference Call Only
Participant Dial-In Number: 1-800-837-1935
Conference ID #: 6140706
A link to the materials for the call, including a slide deck, a summary of the QAO methodology, and a sample QAO Historical Performance Report, will be posted on the Home Health Quality Reporting Program web page.
