HHS/CMS RIN: 0938-AQ36 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Face-to-Face Requirements for Home Health Services; Policy Changes and Clarifications Related to Home Health (CMS-2348-F) 
Abstract: This final rule revises the Medicaid home health service definition as required by section 6407 of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 to add a requirement that physicians document the existence of a face-to-face encounter (including through the use of telehealth) with the Medicaid eligible individual within reasonable timeframes. In addition, this rule amends home health services regulations to clarify the definitions of included medical supplies, equipment and appliances, and clarify that States may not limit home health services to services delivered in the home, or to services furnished to individuals who are homebound.
