CMS Extends Moratoriums on New Home Health Agencies in Key States
Posted on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 6:14 PM
CMS has announced it will extend and implement temporary enrollment moratoriums for home health agencies in all counties in Florida, Illinois, Michigan and Texas as well as Part-B non-emergency ambulance providers in all counties in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The moratorium will also apply to Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) in each state, although states continue to have the ability to opt out if they determine that the imposition of such moratorium would adversely impact Medicaid beneficiaries’ access to care.
CMS maintains its policy that the moratorium does not apply to changes in practice locations, changes to provider or supplier information such as phone number, address, or changes in ownership, except changes in ownership of HHAs that require initial enrollments.
