As CMS is expected to soon release a start date for Review Choice Demonstration for home health providers in Illinois, we're excited to announce the launch of our latest product. Our RCD product is an update to the Pre-Claim Review product from 2016 and is designed to assist home health agencies who choose pre-claim review to affirm their claims.
**Update - December 12, 2018: RCD did not launch in Illinois on December 10th. Providers are still waiting for CMS to open the RCD portal so they can make their choice between pre-claim review, post-payment review, or a limited review with a 25% payment reduction.
In 2016, CMS began rolling out a pilot program to enforce a more proactive oversight strategy on Medicare home health claims in an effort to reduce fraud and waste. The ultimate goal was to reduce improper payments and the cost of additional documentation and resources it takes for CMS to chase them. This "Pre-Claim Review" demonstration subjected home health agencies to additional billing scrutiny and red tape.
