Posted on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 5:46 PM
CMS just announced that RCD will begin in Ohio on September 30, 2019. The choice selection period for HHAs located in Ohio will begin on August 16, 2019 and end on September 15, 2019. HHAs should visit the Palmetto GBA provider portal for information and instructions on the selection process. Through the portal, HHAs will be able to view their available choices and make their selection. Palmetto GBA will also send letters to all Ohio HHAs detailing this information. HHAs that do not make a choice selection by September 15, 2019 will be automatically placed in Choice 2: Post-payment Review. Following the close of the choice selection period, the demonstration will begin in Ohio on September 30, 2019, and all episodes of care starting on or after this date will be subject to the requirements of the choice selected.
As a reminder, Review Choice Demonstration is the newer version of the strict pre-claim review procedures. Providers who previously faced a 25% payment reduction for home health services are now able to choose from either 100% pre-claim review/100% post-payment review or face a 25% payment reduction.
