The Patient-Driven Groupings Model, also known as PDGM, will revolutionize the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies in the United States starting in 2020. Are you ready?
CMS has proposed a big rate cut for home health agencies in 2020, based on unproven assumptions about provider behavior. A bill in Congress would prevent CMS from using faulty assumptions to impose rate cuts. Use NAHC’s Legislative Action Center to contact your representatives in Congress and ask them to support this legislation and protect home health patients and providers today. Congress can protect home health, but we need your voice to make it happen.
