Prospective Payment for Home Health Agencies provides clear and concise coverage of a complex topic. It is the front-runner in presenting information about the new Prospective Payment system. The publication explains: the composition of the Prospective Payment System to help the reader understand how the rates are built and how the various pieces fit -- how the payment system functions and how the upcoming patient classification for case-mix prospective payment directly relates to clinical staffing and operations, including thorough examples and clear, concise descriptions -- how the rates are set and includes rate setting examples presented in a format that can be readily understood by the user. It empowers the reader to anticipate the impact on his/her organization by understanding the financial implications of the new case-mix adjusted prospective rates. Special features of the book are worksheet examples presented in an easy-to-use format and a glossary designed for use by those not generally familiar with the home health care Prospective Payment System ter
