Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony With Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Notice of Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

TRICARE; Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS); Adoption of Medicare's Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Adjustments for Reimbursement Under TRICARE's Home Health Prospective Payment System Demonstration
Document Number: 2019-20815
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-09-25
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This notice describes the adoption of Medicare's Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) adjustments for reimbursement under TRICARE's Home Health Prospective Payment System (HH PPS). In recognition that the Defense Health Agency (DHA) strongly supports the implementation of value-based incentive programs, in accordance with Section 705(a) of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, the adoption of this model establishes a new value-based initiative within the TRICARE program, based on Medicare's similar pilot. In the Medicare HHVBP model, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) determines a payment adjustment up to the maximum percentage, upward or downward, based on the Home Health Agency's (HHA) Total Performance Score (TPS). As a result, the model incentivizes quality improvements and encourages efficiency. States selected for participation in the Medicare HHVBP model include Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington. CMS cannot release HHVBP adjustment factors to TRICARE, so Home Health Agencies (HHAs) in the participating states will be required to send their annual payment adjustment reports to the applicable TRICARE contractors prior to January 1 each year. Failure to submit the required payment adjustment documentation would result in full application of the negative adjustment factor for the calendar year. This requirement allows TRICARE to mirror Medicare's HHVBP payment adjustments. The TRICARE HHVBP model will only apply to Medicare- certified HHAs in the nine participating states. Specialized HHAs that qualify for corporate services provider status but are not Medicare- certified will continue to be reimbursed under the CHAMPUS Maximum Allowable Charge (CMAC) system and will not be subject to the TRICARE HHVBP model.

Delayed Implementation of Grains Ounce Equivalents in the Child and Adult Care Food Program
Document Number: 2019-20808
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-25
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
This action delays, from October 1, 2019 until October 1, 2021, the implementation date of the ``ounce equivalents'' requirement for crediting grains served in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The final rule, Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, published on April 25, 2016, specified that meal planners must use ounce equivalents to determine the amount of creditable grain served as part of a reimbursable meal or snack. A two-year extension allows more time for FNS to develop additional technical assistance materials and for State agencies and sponsoring organizations to provide training and technical assistance to support meal planners and assure compliance nationwide. This action is consistent with FNS' efforts to provide excellent customer service as we work with State and local partners to ensure high quality, nutritious meals for children and adult participants in CACFP. This action also applies to the crediting of grains served to infants and toddlers in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. In addition, this rule makes a technical correction to the application for free and reduced-price meals for adult CACFP participants.
