Medicare margins have increasingly been a subject of consternation by policy makers in recent years. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Medicare Payment Advisory Commission calculate and present margins to Congress year after year, ultimately resulting in reduced reimbursement for providers through cuts and rebasing. How have profit margins been presented historically and more recently? How are they calculated? How have they been driving reimbursement rates? This session is a 'must' for any home health industry professional who wants to understand how Congress reacts to government reports about profit margins.
