The Center for Medicare Advocacy (the Center) has prepared comments about Medicare-covered home health services in response to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). Our comments can be found at: https://medicareadvocacy.org/cma-comments-on-cy-2022-hh-prospective-payment-system-more/
The Center is concerned that the proposed rules and policies, if finalized, will significantly diminish the ability of many beneficiaries to access home health care. The Federal Register NPRM can be found at: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-07-07/pdf/2021-13763.pdf.
Public comments on the NPRM are due to CMS by Friday, August 27th. As you write your own comments, feel free to from borrow from the Center’s comments, and share our comments with others. If you would prefer not to write your own comments, you are welcome to sign-on to our comments. Please let us know by Friday, August 20th if you have any questions or would like to sign-on to the Center’s comments; to do so contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your participation in this rule-making process and for working together to strengthen access to Medicare-covered home health care.
