The Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model was designed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to give Medicare-certified home health agencies incentives to deliver high quality and efficient care. By adjusting payments based on the quality of care, rather than the quantity of services provided, the HHVBP Model enables CMS to tie home health agencies’ payment to their performance. CMS launched the 5-year HHVBP demonstration program in 2016, with payment adjustments up to 8% based on performance.
The HHVBP Model reinforces the importance of patient-centered care practices. The patient experience is central to the success of home healthcare organizations and professionals, and the longevity of lucrative business across all sectors of the healthcare industry. The CASPER report, Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) Survey, and Home Health Compare database are all tools designed to assess and monitor the quality of care provided by home health agencies.
