The 2018 Home Health PPS final rule was issued November 1 at the Federal Register public inspection page. The good news is that CMS is NOT finalizing the home health grouping model (HHGM) in this rule, stating they are "not finalizing the Home Health Groupings Model and will take additional time to further engage with stakeholders to move towards a system that shifts the focus from volume of services to a more patient-centered model. CMS will take the comments submitted on the proposed rule into further consideration regarding patients' needs that strikes the right balance in putting patients first."

A huge thank you to everyone who took time to reach out to their elected officials ! This change is an outcome of the home care industry across the country uniting and elevating your voices. Collaboration was key to this amazing success!

Stay tuned for further details regarding the final rule and stand ready to engage in the future conversations around Medicare reform.
