Moratorium re-extended on new home healthcare agencies in some cities


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has re-extended  for another six months its moratorium on new Medicare home healthcare agencies, subunits and ambulance suppliers in some major cities as part of its campaign against waste and fraud.

Modern Healthcare reported that “new home healthcare agencies, home healthcare agency subunits and branch locations will not be allowed in the areas of Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Houston and Miami. New Medicare Part B ambulance suppliers will continue to be barred in the Houston and Philadelphia areas as well.”

The cities have been under moratoria since 2013,  under the Affordable Care Act.
