The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted the 2014 Home Health Agency Public Use File for calendar year 2014. This file contains information on utilization, payment (Medicare payment and standard payment), submitted charges, and demographic and chronic condition indicators organized by CMS Certification Number (6-digit provider identification number), Home Health Resource Group (HHRG), and state of service.
The information presented in this file does not indicate the quality of care provided by individual home health agencies. The file only contains cost and utilization information. Additionally, the data are not risk adjusted and thus do not account for differences in the underlying severity of disease of patient populations treated by providers.
