The programs are sponsored by NAHC in partnership with home care associations across the country.

Nine state associations who are part of the CMS Value Based Purchasing Pilot are partnering with NAHC to provide information to members on how they can be successful under the new reimbursement model. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began its HHVBP program as outlined in the Final Rule issued as part of the 2016 Home Health Prospective Payment Rule. Home health agencies in the nine states will be competing against one another for payment bonuses and payment reductions. Starting this year, agencies will have the opportunity to qualify for a bonus payment of up to three percent and rising to eight percent over the next five years.
