CMS announced that it is sharing more than $15 million in savings with 166 Home Health Agencies (HHAs) based on their performance during the first year of the 2-year Medicare Home Health Pay For Performance (HHP4P) demonstration. The demonstration project began in January, 2008 and ended December, 2009. The results for calendar year 2008 produced $15.4 million in savings to be shared with HHAs in seven states representing four census regions; the four regions were Northeast, South, West and Midwest, but the Midwest region did not achieve any savings.
