Get a rundown of the latest changes in the 2021 home health final rule, including RAP requirements, episode timing, home health payments, quality reporting, and more. Learn how to speed up RAP submissions and comply with all pending requirements.

At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:

  • Adopt processes for speedier RAP submissions
  • Use and document telehealth for better patient care
  • Determine how your payments will be affected in 2021
  • Assess whether infusion therapy is right for you
  • Avoid payment delays related to timing of OASIS submissions


You’re at risk for a payment reduction starting in 2021 if RAPs are not submitted within the five-day window. This is a challenge for agencies that are also responding to COVID-19 and the public health emergency. And it’s just one of the changes set forth in the 2021 home health payment final rule.

Attend this 90-minute webinar for complete details on what CMS included in the final rule, including RAPs, functional impairment levels, wage-index changes, quality reporting, and infusion therapy.
