Review Choice Demonstration Delayed

Posted on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 12:33 AM

It was hardly a surprise to find out that CMS has delayed the implementation of RCD in Illinois on Monday, and now it is unclear when it will take effect.

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is continuing the process for Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) approval for the Review Choice Demonstration for Home Health Services. After PRA approval is received, we will update our website with the final, approved demonstration information, including a start date for home health agencies in Illinois and instructions on the choice selection process. CMS will provide notice on this website before phasing in the other demonstration states: Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, and Texas.”

CMS had previously stated that they would give agencies two weeks’ notice before implementation, giving agencies time to decide how they would participate in the demonstration. 

We will keep you updated on RCD and its anticipated start date.
