CMS Releases 2024 HIT Monitoring Report

March 19, 2024

CMS released its annual monitoring report on the Medicare Part B Home Infusion Therapy (HIT) Services benefit showing that both provider participation and beneficiary utilization have declined over the past year.

Only 203 suppliers have participated in the benefit out of nearly 1,500 eligible infusion pharmacies and thousands of home health agencies. Most providers have made only a handful of visits with just 7 accounting for more than half (55%) of all HIT visits. This lack of participation leaves many states with no participating providers for Part B HIT services.

Without a per infusion day payment for pharmacy services, access will continue to wane. Medicare beneficiaries deserve the same site of care options as commercial insurance patients – which is why NHIA is advocating for the passage of the Preserving Patient Access to Home Infusion Act.
