Home health leaders are cheering U.S. Senate bipartisan lawmakers for introducing new legislation that prevents a newly proposed 7.69% permanent cut and an additional $2 billion in “clawback” cuts to home health care services included in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Home Health Prospective Payment System (HHPPS) for 2023.

Co-sponsored by U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), “The Preserving Access to Home Health Act of 2022” would delay the 7.69% payment cut proposed for 2023, which would total $1.33 billion in 2023 alone, according to a press release from The Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare (The Partnership) and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC).
