The new prospective payment system (PPS) that will take effect for Medicare-participating agencies on October 1, 2000 will create a dramatic change in the culture of home care that has existed since the inception of the home care benefit in 1965. Will these changes be for the better or for the worse? Who will be the winners, and who will be the losers? How will these incentives change the behavior of home care agencies and the caregivers they employ in their efforts to provide health care to the infirm and disabled?
