In early 2021, CMS announced its expansion of the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing model (HHVBP) beginning in 2022, while also increasing the maximum positive and negative payment adjustment to eight percent. Whether you’re already operating under the HHVBP model or will be adopting it for the first time following the expansion, your home health agency will need to be prepared for the myriad of changes in order to achieve and maintain quality outcomes.
During the first of our three-part recorded webinar series presented in partnership with Simitree Healthcare Consulting, Charles M. Breznicky Jr., RN, MSN, MBA, HCS-D, Director at SimiTree Healthcare Consulting, is joined by John Rabbia, PT, DPT, MBA, MS, COS-C, Senior Manager at SimiTree Healthcare Consulting, to provide an in-depth overview of HHVBP, including the background and rationale of the model, performance scores and their impact on reimbursements, and the future of HHVBP. This session is followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
