WA Correspondent, MedPage Today Wed Mar 15

Wa. — Congress should reduce payments to home health agencies and inpatient rehabilitation facilities by 5% in 2018, according to a completely new report from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission .

The report released Wed also advised that currently mandated payment updates for long-term care hospitals, hospice, and ambulatory surgical centers for 2018, and for skilled nursing facilities in 2018 and 2019, be scratched.

The report justified shrinking payment for agencies because of chronic overpayment, noting that payments have outpaced costs for more than ten years.
