ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the changes in the face-to-face (F2F) physician encounter requirement in the 2013 PPS proposed rule of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It notes that the proposal allows the non-physician practitioners to perform the F2F visit in an inpatient facility. It adds that the proposal fails to address the major hurdles faced by home health agencies (HHAs) in F2F compliance.
