The current payment methodology for Medicare Part A home health services is driven in part by eight specific items found in the OASIS instrument. Several other payers utilize OASIS data for payment purposes as well. Home Health Value Based Payment also adjusts payment upward or downward using a Total Performance Score (TPS) method, 35% of which is calculated based on OASIS accuracy.
