Denial rates rising thanks to home health cuts, Dombi, Cunningham say
McKnight's Home Care
As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services prepares to release its proposed home health rule for calendar year 2024, providers are holding out hope that CMS will omit any further rate cuts. In this McKnight’s Home Care Newsmakers podcast, National Association for Home Care & Hospice President William Dombi and Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare CEO Joanne Cunningham talked about their efforts to stop any reductions. They also discussed how the 3.925% permanent cut that went into effect in January has had significant effects on hospital-to-home-health conversation rates.
