CMS Announces New ‘Phased-In Approach’ to the Review Choice Demonstration
Home Health Care News
The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced Friday it will not resume a full-blown resumption of the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) for home health agencies in participating states later this month.
Instead, CMS is “phasing in” RCD for agencies in North Carolina and Florida. Agencies in Illinois, Ohio and Texas will be granted flexibilities as well, according to CMS, which cited the current public health emergency as the reason for the newly announced RCD relief.
