New at Noyce Consulting — home health cost report
Home Health Compare 5-Star Ratings grade patient satisfaction survey data in addition to the quality of care that agencies provide to patients.
Agencies who aren't registered in the program by April 1 will miss the deadline and lose money.
If security officers in every hospice and home health agency don't act by March 15, their agencies will be unable to comply with requirements to file cost reports (home health) and to calculate & report estimated aggregate caps (hospice) by March 31 if the hospice’s MAC does not provide the data directly to the hospice.
Theresa M. Forster, VP for Hospice Policy & Programs, National Association for Home Care & Hospice circulated this message warning agencies how to avoid losing access to Provider Statistical and Reimbursement (PS&R) data necessary to report by ensuring all agency security officers act on the email received from their respective Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC).
