The 2025 Home Health PPS Proposed Rule will likely include four new Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) topics for quality reporting beginning in 2027.
The proposed rule has not been released, but CMS has published a document online that highlights a draft of five questions around “Health-Related Social Needs” that are expected to be effective Jan. 1, 2027, in the Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HHQRP). No other information was available.
The topics include living situation, food, utilities and transportation.
