Home Health Review Choice Demonstration Extended Five More Years

Published 05/17/2024

Effective June 1, 2024, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will extend the Review Choice Demonstration for Home Health Services for an additional five years. The demonstration will continue in the current demonstration states of Illinois, Ohio, Texas, North Carolina, Florida and Oklahoma.

As part of the extension, CMS is removing Choice 3: Minimal Review with 25% Payment Reduction from the initial choice selections. Palmetto GBA will proactively reach out to coordinate with the small number of affected providers to make a new review choice selection beginning July 1, 2024.

More information is available on the CMS website's Review Choice Demonstration for Home Health Services page
