ercent above cost; 18 states would have negative Medicare home health margins]
  • If payments are rebased at 1.2 percent per year, Hawaii's Medicare home health payments will be 16.4% below cost.  [national average at cost; 19 states would have negative Medicare home health margins]
  • If payments are rebased to the statutory maximum of 3.5 percent per year, the national average Medicare margin would go negative beginning in 2015 and plummet to -11.4 percent in 2017, with every state in the nation projected to experience negative Medicare margins. Hawaii's loss would be the second biggest in the nation, at 27.8% below cost.
  • "We urge decision-makers to consider the economics we are already operating in before further reducing needed Medicare funding. Instead of more cuts, we urge lawmakers to embrace pro-patient solutions that better ensure beneficiary access to clinically advanced, cost-effective, patient preferred home healthcare services for all seniors," added Eric Berger, CEO of the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare.

    Across Hawaii, approximately 2,950 Medicare beneficiaries receive skilled home healthcare from home health agencies employing more than 2,700 home health professionals.
