HHCAHPS Update for Medicare Providers

CMS announced during its February Home Health Open Door Forum that providers who have not registered for and begun participation in the Home Health Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) must begin doing so by April 2012 in order to receive a full market basket update in 2014. Information about HHCAHP can be found here.

Agencies that participated in HHCAHPS from October 2010 through September 2011 will have their data (minus dry run data) reported on Home Health Compare beginning April 19. 2012. The website will provide rolling four quarter averages and quarterly updates. Each agency’s data will be compared to state and national averages.
