CMS Issues HHA Reporting Requirements- CR-8441

HHA Reporting Requirements for the Certifying Physician and the Physician Who Signs POC

CMS has issued Change Request 8441 which instructs home health agencies to report the NPI and name of the physician who certifies the patient for home health services and to also report the NPI and name of the physician who signs the POC. CMS is instructing agencies that both the attending physician and the other physician fields should be completed even if the certifying physician is the same as the physician who signed the plan of care. The additional reporting requirements do not go into effect until July 1, 2014.
