Final Day to Sign Letter to CMS: Prevent Payment Cuts and Unsustainable Value Based Purchasing Penalty Percentage

Tuesday, September 15, is the final day for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to co-sign the letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to prevent the proposed home health case mix cuts and Home Health Value Based Purchasing (HHVBP) penalty percentage.

A total of 71 members have now agreed to sign the letter. The current list of co-signers is available here.

You may use the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s (NAHC) Legislation Action Center (click here) to encourage your Representative to sign the letter by Tuesday, September 15. Alternatively, given the short timeframe, a call might be most effective. You can reach your Representative by calling the Capitol Operator at (202) 225-3121. When calling, ask to speak with the Representative’s Health staffer.
