Encompass Health Restructures Therapy Compensation Amid PDGM Rebalancing

Home health providers large and small have had to navigate workforce uncertainty, supply shortages, admissions declines and various other challenges over the past several months. All of those obstacles are tied to the coronavirus, which has turned the home health industry upside down in 2020. Encompass Health Corp. (NYSE: EHC) faced the majority of that disruption in April and May, company leadership noted Tuesday during a conference call to discuss its second-quarter financial results. The Birmingham, Alabama-based provider is now nearing a full recovery, though it is still working to rebalance its operations in regard to the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). The challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have been and continue to be significant,” Encompass Health President and CEO Mark Tarr said during the call. But … we believe we have implemented plans across our organization that will allow us to continue to succeed in the face of the ongoing challenges.”
