Home Health Agencies
Long-term care providers are participating in 'most ambitious test' of bundled payments, CMS announcesJanuary 31, 2014
Skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies are among 232 healthcare providers that have entered into agreements to take part in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced Thursday.
Federal officials have brought down what they said is the largest home health fraud scheme ever concocted. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said around $375 million was billed incorrectly to Medicare and Medicaid, and announced the suspension of 78 home health agencies associated with physician Jacques Roy, M.D., of Rockwall, TX.
