Level of Program:

We finally have details on what the new payment system for the home health industry may look like beginning in 2020. Now is the time to start preparing your agency for these sweeping changes. In this webinar, you will learn the key developments outlined in the proposed 2019 PPS rule and how to best set your agency up for success.

Expert speaker Robert Markette will help you understand how to determine your agency’s risk under the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) as outlined in the proposed rule. The rule also includes several major items that will affect payments in the coming years. You’ll get the latest on the increase to agencies’ total reimbursement in 2019 as well as proposed changes to the Home Health Quality Reporting Program, value-based purchasing, the rural add-on, and home infusion therapy.

This detailed webinar will help you:

  • Know the basics of the proposed PDGM and how your agency can start preparing now
  • Learn the key differences between PDGM, CMS’ prior plans for a Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM), and the current PPS
  • Review changes to assorted quality measures—from the Home Health Quality Reporting Program to value-based purchasing—and how these changes could impact your agency
  • Understand what changes are forthcoming to rural add-on payments and how those bonus payments will be phased out
  • Identify new opportunities as a result of planned changes involving home infusion therapy and remote patient monitoring


  • Explanation of the PDGM and how it will change home health from the existing payment system
  • Outline of how payments will increase for agencies in 2019 
  • Details about changes for the Home Health Quality Reporting Program and value-based purchasing
  • Examination of how rural add-on payments will change and be phased out in the coming years
