Rockville, Md., Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) continues Abt’s longstanding work helping the agency more efficiently deliver vital home health, hospice and home infusion benefits. The contract, which emphasizes the reform and monitoring of payment systems, has a total value of $4.7 million.
Upcoming work will include analyzing health care providers’ responses to multiple payment system changes that were designed by Abt—in partnership with CMS—and implemented via public rulemaking. These include:
“We’ve been working with CMS on payment issues for home health since the 1990s and on hospice payment since 2001,” said Michael Plotzke, Ph.D., the Principal Investigator for this work. “Under this new contract, we can use our expertise in health policy, payment and claims and other data to continue helping CMS better support beneficiaries who are struggling with serious health challenges.”
