Value-Based Purchasing Begins in 2016 – Will You Be Ready?

Value-Based Purchasing Begins in 2016 – Will You Be Ready? is proudly presented to you by National Association for Home Care & Hospice. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

The 2015 Home Health Final Rule includes the provision to begin value based purchasing (HH VBP) beginning January 2016 in five to eight yet-to-be identified states and providers. The proposed revenue adjustment is also between five and eight percent, which represents the potential payment holdback, as well as the potential bonuses and penalties to the providers, all based upon Home Health Compares outcomes and HH-CAHPs results.  This program will help you to evaluate your agency’s potential exposure to the penalties and opportunities for bonus based upon your current measureable clinical performance and where your results will likely need to be. It will also discuss the cash flow issues related to the payment withhold and give you some background on what we can learn from the 2008/2009 HHP4P demonstration and Hospital VBP programs.


  • Identify the potential parameters of this program, the proposed implementation and the potential financial exposures using the experience of the HHP4P demonstration and Hospital VBP provisions as a guide
  • Determine methods for identifying your agency’s current ongoing clinical outcomes and HH-CAHPS performance and where you need or want them to be
  • Identify what your agency should be doing now to create improvement and implement plans to better position yourself to be successful in this expected new program
