Review Choice Demonstration Action Required by May 16th to Avoid Penalty

Posted on Friday, April 5, 2019 1:40 PM

On Wednesday, CMS announced that Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) will begin in Illinois on June 1, 2019.  The choice selection process will begin April 17, 2019 and end on May 16, 2019.  The three choices for the demonstration are:

  • Pre-claim review
  • Postpayment review
  • Minimal postpayment review with a 25% payment reduction

If a selection is not made, the home health agency will be placed in the postpayment review. 

Illinois HHAs do not need to wait to receive their letter and may go to the provider portal starting on April 17, 2019.  HHAs that do not make a choice selection by May 16, 2019 will be automatically placed in Choice 2: Postpayment Review. Following the close of the choice selection period, the demonstration will begin in Illinois on June 1, 2019, and all episodes of care starting on or after this date will be subject to the requirements of the choice selected.
