CMS Announces HHVBP Technical Expert Panel (TEP) – Nominations Now Open

THE CMS call for HHVBP TEP member nominations is open until September 27th.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) contracted with Abt Associates, Inc. to support the implementation of the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP), including the development of refinements to the measures and scoring methodology, first for the original Model and now for the expanded HHVBP Model. Abt is planning to convene a Technical Expert Panel (TEP) to gain feedback during development and maintenance of the expanded HHVBP Model.

Objectives of the TEP include providing input on the following focus areas:

  • Changes to the measures used in the expanded HHVBP Model.
  • Refinements to the scoring methodology, including changes to the relative weight given to different measures and/or measure categories.
  • Health equity considerations.
  • Ways to improve the performance reporting to HHAs.


TEP Expected Time Commitment: 

The TEP is expected to begin in October 2023 and continue meeting for several years. We expect to convene one in-person meeting and up to three teleconferences each year. We anticipate the first meetings to be scheduled around the following times:

  • Introductory teleconference, late October 2023
  • In-person 1-Day Meeting, mid-November 2023

The TEP is expected to convene no more than two times in Fall 2023 (one virtual and one in-person meeting). In subsequent years, the TEP may continue to meet up to four times each year (three virtual and one in-person meeting each year).
