Home Health CAHPS
The CY2024 annual payment update (APU) period began on April 1, 2022. Home health agencies are required to provide data for April 2022 through March 2023 to meet compliance requirements and avoid the APU penalty. Those providers that believe they are exempt from CAHPS because they are a small agency, specifically having had 59 or fewer patients from the period of April 2021 through March 2022, need to complete the Participation Exemption Request Form for the annual payment update for calendar year 2024.
The HHCAHPS Coordination Team Quarterly Review newsletter is now available as well.
