Important Changes to Home Health Rural Add-On Payments

CR 10782 creates a new value code, and an associated FIPS State and County Code.

The new value code 85 is defined as “County Where Service is Rendered.”

All RAPs (Request for Anticipated Payments) and home health claims, TOBs (Type of Bills) 032x, for home health services provided on or after January 1, 2019 must contain the new coding!

Ensure that your staff is up to speed to avoid interruptions in your cash flow! Read more here.
