If you or a family member has ever needed home health care service, you understand the important role it plays in your health and quality of life.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed budget cuts for 2018 known as the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) that can have a significant impact on patients’ home health care service. What’s more, the proposal for these budget cuts has not even been tested! Disruptions in service is dangerous for patients.
Additional time is needed to analyze the proposal, open dialogue between the CMS and all parties affected and then develop and implement reform with the least disruption to patient service.
There is opposition to this proposal by both parties as well as home health care providers and patient advocacy groups.
Take action. Contact your congressman. Respectfully request the CMS not include the HHGM proposal in its rulemaking.
Protect Medicare for America’s seniors and Veterans.
