If you're going to the NAHC Financial Management Conference you don't want to miss Education Session #403, presented by SHP's Chris Attaya and Lynda Laff of Laff Associates.
The 2015 Home Health Final Rule includes the provision to begin Value Based Purchasing (HH VBP) beginning January 2016 in 5–8 yet to be identified states and providers. The proposed revenue adjustment is also between 5–8%, which represents the potential payment holdback, as well as the potential bonuses and penalties to the providers, all based upon Home Health Compares outcomes and HH-CAHPs results.
This program will help you to evaluate your agency’s potential exposure to penalties and bonus opportunities based on measureable clinical performance and where your results need to be. It will also discuss the cash flow issues related to the payment withhold and give you some background on what we can learn from the 2008/2009 HHP4P demonstration and Hospital VBP programs.
