Show Notes

The Center for Medicare Advocacy (CMA) is reporting news about a new payment structure for home care, noting that such a plan is likely to adversely affect a hospital’s ability to acquire home care services for some patients. One of the factors to determine the payment to a home care agency for an episode of care is the origin of the patient, with two rates – one for the community, and one for the institution – and obviously, the referral from the community will have a lower payment. 

Judith A. Stein, JD, executive director of the Center for Medicare Advocacy, reports on this story, along with William Dombi, Esq. president of the National Association of Home Care and Hospice, during this edition of Monitor Mondays.
