November 21, NAHC Report


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a Survey and Certification memorandum outlining the policy and process for home health agency (HHA) Subunit transitions.


Effective January 13, 2018, home health Subunit designations will be eliminated and all Subunits will either need to convert to a free standing agency or convert to a Branch.
