4 Reasons Home Health Agencies and SNFs Need Contract Therapists

Why Contract Therapy Services Provide Better Value in the Age of PDGM/PDPM

With the change to value-based care under the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), home health agencies may be tempted to significantly reduce their therapy services. According to data from the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), almost half of the home health providers surveyed expected to decrease their therapy utilization under PDGM—with 36% expecting to decrease their use of contract therapy services by more than 10%.

Does this mean that value-based care spells the end of home health therapy? No, not at all.

But many are wondering—what can contract therapy providers do to become the “must-have” partner for home health agencies?
