Proposed Rule Includes Home Infusion Changes

WASHINGTON – Temporary transitional payments for home infusion therapy are moving forward, according to an upcoming proposed rule.

The rule, which will be published in the July 12 Federal Register, contains information on the implementation of the payments, which will fix a payment gap created by the 21st Century Cures Act. The Cures Act requires Medicare to pay for services associated with providing Part B home infusion drugs, but not until 2021.

The temporary payment, which was passed as part of a government spending bill in February, takes effect Jan. 1, 2019.

The proposed rule also seeks comments on elements of a new home infusion therapy benefit category, proposes standards for home infusion therapy suppliers, and proposes an oversight process for organizations that accredit home infusion suppliers.
