Please Note

 

Starting January 1, 2011, a physician certifying a Medicare patient for home health services must document that  he or she met face-to-face with the patient, either up to 90 days before the start of care

or up to 30 days after.

CMS requires the physician to list the primary diagnosis for home health care (i.e., why the patient requires nursing/therapy services in his or her home) and sign the home health face-to-face encounter (HHF2F) document, attesting that such a visit took place.

If you have further questions regarding how to make a referral, please contact the agency at (818) 616-1111, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
