Effects of Medicare payment reform: evidence from the home health interim and prospective payment systems.
The researchers contrasted the effects of two Medicare payment reforms for home health agencies: the interim payment system (IPS) and the prospective payment system (PPS). The 1997 IPS reform lowered payments for both fee-for-service and episode-based care, as predicted by their conceptual model. The PPS in 2000 raised average but lowered marginal payment.
