Q: Does the administration’s 2015 budget proposal include any payment changes?
 
A: Yes. This proposal reduces market basket updates for inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, and home health agencies by 1.1% in each year 2015 through 2024. Payment updates for these providers would not drop below zero as a result of this proposal.
