Abstract

This retrospective case study examined whether the Medicare Prospective Payment System affected the number of visits and physical performance among Medicare home health patients after total knee replacements. Post-Prospective Payment System significant results included fewer visits, less improvement in knee extension range of motion, and increased ambulation distances at discharge.
