Home health agencies (HHAs) are subject to the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD). Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) are required to review an HHA’s documentation to determine if beneficiaries meet home health coverage requirements per the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual, chapter 7 (PDF, 493 KB).

Palmetto GBA provides HHAs with a wealth of information addressing the requirements and expectations of the RCD. Browse our collected articles about all aspects of the RCD.
