[UPDATED] CMS Releases CY 2021 Home Health PPS Final Rule

On Thursday, October 29, CMS released the CY 2021 Home Health Prospective Payment System Final Rule. Highlights include:

        • 2.0% payment update
        • Finalized changes to the wage index – including the 5% cap on negative adjustments for 2021
        • The behavioral adjustment for PDGM remains in place
        • Current telehealth adjustments become permanent after the end of the PHE (but the rule does not change anything with respect to reimbursement for these visits)
