Review Choice Demonstration Updated and to Begin Soon
Posted on Monday, March 4, 2019 1:43 AM
The Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) project has cleared the Office of Management and Budget, allowing CMS to begin implementing the Demonstration project.
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.
The RCD will begin in Illinois, then be expanded to Ohio, North Carolina, Florida and Texas for five years. No start date for Illinois has been announced, however, they will give at least 60-day notice before it begins in the other four states. We will let you know the dates as we understand them or you can go to the CMS website where all updates will be provided.
