NAHC to File Pre-Claim Review Lawsuit Against CMS
On October 23, 2016, NAHC announced at their Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL that they will be filing a lawsuit against CMS over the pre-claim review demonstration. Pre-claim review is currently being conducted in Illinois, however initiation of the program in other states has been delayed.
NAHC President, Val Halamandaris, stated that filing a lawsuit is a “last resort” for NAHC but said that he feels as though they have no other choice. He said he plans to lead a tour of Illinois to publicize the damage that pre-claim review has done to patients and providers in the the state. He encouraged NAHC members to band together to fight back against the “scourge of homecare.”
