Document Number: 2017-15825
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule updates the home health prospective payment system (HH PPS) payment rates, including the national, standardized 60- day episode payment rates, the national per-visit rates, and the non- routine medical supply (NRS) conversion factor, effective for home health episodes of care ending on or after January 1, 2018. This rule also: updates the HH PPS case-mix weights using the most current, complete data available at the time of rulemaking; implements the 3rd- year of a 3-year phase-in of a reduction to the national, standardized 60-day episode payment to account for estimated case-mix growth unrelated to increases in patient acuity (that is, nominal case-mix growth) between CY 2012 and CY 2014; and discusses our efforts to monitor the potential impacts of the rebasing adjustments that were implemented in CY 2014 through CY 2017. This rule proposes case-mix methodology refinements, as well as a change in the unit of payment from 60-day episodes of care to 30-day periods of care, to be implemented for home health services beginning on or after January 1, 2019; and finally, this rule proposes changes to the Home Health Value- Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model and to the Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HH QRP).
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-15806
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-13- 14, for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. AD 2016-13-14 requires an inspection to determine if certain left and right main landing gear (MLG) retract actuator rod ends are installed and repetitive liquid penetrant inspections (LPIs) of affected left and right MLG retract actuator rod ends, and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2016-13-14, we have determined that replacement of the left and right MLG is necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the actions specified in AD 2016-13-14 and add a replacement of the left and right MLG retract actuator rod ends. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

The proposed rule reflects the most up-to-date medical knowledge and clinical practice of nephrology and urology specialties, as well as comments from subject matter experts and the public garnered during a public forum held January 27-28, 2011.
