CMS updates home infusion payments 

WASHINGTON – CMS has announced an 8.7% payment increase for home infusion therapy for calendar year 2023. 

The payment is based on the percent increase in the Consumer Price Index for all urban customers (CPI-U) for the 12-month period ending with June of the preceding year (9.1%), reduced by the productivity adjustment for CY 2023 (0.4%). 

“The single payment amounts are also adjusted in a budget neutral manner using standardization factors for geographic area wage differences using the geographic adjustment factors (GAF),” CMS states. “The CY 2023 GAF standardization factor that will be used in updating the final HIT payment amounts for CY 2023 is not available for this final rule. However, the standardization factor, the final GAFs, national home infusion therapy payment rates, and locality-adjusted home infusion therapy payment rates will be posted on CMS’s Home Infusion Therapy Services webpage once these rates are finalized.” 

CMS announced the payment increase in the CY2023 Home Health Prospective Payment System rate Update and Home Infusion Therapy Services Requirements – Final Rule (CMS-1766-F).
