Congresswoman Duckworth, Senator Durbin, Illinois Lawmakers Working to Protect Patients, Call for Delay of Medicare Home Health Pilot Program

Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth
Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--October 4, 2016.  Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) joined U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) this week in calling on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to delay further implementation of the Pre-Claim Review Demonstration (PCRD) in Illinois, which has resulted in unintended consequences for both patients and provider capacity for Medicare home health services. Duckworth and Durbin were joined by the entire Illinois Congressional Delegation in seeking a delay of the PCRD, which has proved burdensome for home health providers throughout Illinois, negatively impacting patient access to care.
