This is a final reminder to all Medicare-certified home health agencies (HHAs) that the deadline for submitting the CY 2020 APU exemption request is 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Monday, April 1, 2019. This deadline has been extended because March 31, 2019 falls on a Sunday.

As announced in the Home Health Prospective Payment System (HH PPS) Rate Update Final Rule for Calendar Year 2019 that was published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2018, Medicare-certified HHAs that served 59 or fewer unduplicated patients between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018 who met survey eligibility criteria can request a PER for the CY 2020 APU. 

HHAs can access the online PER form on HHCAHPS website at the following link: https://homehealthcahps.org/ForHHAs/ParticipationExemptionRequestForm.aspx
