What reimbursement changes did the Obama administration propose for post-acute care (PAC) providers in its budget for fiscal year 2016?

Homecare Insider, February 9, 2015

The proposed budget includes an annual reduction to the market basket updates for PAC providers from 2016 through 2025, including a 1.1% drop each year for home health. In total, the proposal would slash home health reimbursements by more than $15 billion and reduce overall Medicare spending by $102.1 billion in that timeframe.
