Impact of the Home Health PPS on Access in Rural America

Under the PPS, home care agencies are reimbursed based on a 60-day episode of care, with adjustments to the base payment that reflect differences in resource needs.

This study was designed to provide information on how the shift to prospective payment has affected access to home care and patterns of home health utilization in rural communities.

This project was conducted as part of the Rural Health Research and Policy Center.
