Home Health Operators Taking Stock of Allies, Enemies Amid Mounting Headwinds

During the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s (NAHC) Financial Management Conference this week, a stranger leaned over to me to ask if I could hear the speakers of the particular panel we were listening in to. 

I told him yes, but barely. He told me he couldn’t, but that he “probably knew what they were talking about anyway.”

But I’m not sure I believe him. Yes, home health care stakeholders – and myself – tend to go over some of the same talking points over and over again. It’s usually for good reason, though I realize it can get tiring.

Having said that, this past week was filled with newfound energy – perhaps driven by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) 2023 home health proposed payment rule, which turned the news cycle over.

I left with a full notebook of new talking points, new observations, and on- and off-the-record comments to share with readers.

That notebook will be emptied throughout the coming weeks, but I’ll begin here, in this week’s members-only, exclusive HHCN+ Update.
