Home Health Services and Hospice Care

The implementation of Medicare payment methodology for home health and hospice providers that do not have an existing contract or provider agreement in place with VA for home health and hospice care provided to Veterans was implemented on Oct. 1, 2014. The new pricing methodology will not affect existing contracts or provider agreements that a VA Medical Center (VAMC) has in place with non-VA home health and hospice providers.

If you have any questions regarding the revised payment methodology, please send your inquiry to Additionally, community care providers can stay up-to-date with VA Community Care rograms by subscribing to our email distribution list. A link to the ListServ Community Newsletter sign-up is located in the Provider Toolkit.
