Summary

The implementation of the no-pay Request for Anticipated Payment (RAP) did not come without its setbacks, both at the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and home health organization levels. This adds to the strain already put on home health organizations concerned with staying above water while following the new regulations and avoiding potential penalties. • Complete start of care (SOC) visits within 24 to 48 hours – The Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) is no longer required upfront, a change strategically made to support the submission of timely RAPs. • RAPs need to be easy to see and monitor, and assign day five as “late,” allowing the organization built-in buffer time.
