Almost Family feels CMS has obligation to implement HHGM budget neutral

Almost Family said in tonight's earnings release, "With regard to the proposed rule, we feel very strongly CMS has an obligation to implement the HHGM in a budget neutral manner consistent with CMS' historical practices in rule making and with its statutory grant of authority from Congress. To do otherwise may put vulnerable patient populations at risk and most certainly will drive unnecessary opposition to what is otherwise directionally a positive policy development. Having said that, we feel CMS is signaling a new era in provider-industry collaboration, and we in the home health industry have an obligation to work reciprocally with CMS to further refine the model prior to its implementation. We're pleased that many of the design principles of this new case mix model are consistent with an increased focus on chronically ill populations which is an approach we have long championed. We very much appreciate the inclusive process and early announcement of the model by CMS last year and its inclusion in the current rule, some 18 months before possible implementation."

Jefferies still bullish on Almost Family after Q4 results
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says he remains bullish on Almost Family following the company's Q4 results. The company is well positioned to benefit from the "notable strengthening" of home nursing industry fundamentals, Tanquilut tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He expects Almost Family shares to outperform in 2017 amid acquisition benefits and improvement in the company's underperforming Florida operation. Tanquilut keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $58 price target.

Almost Family reported 'solid' Q1 earnings beat, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says Almost Family's (AFAM) "solid" earnings beat in Q1 was driven by "strong" organic admissions growth in both its legacy home nursing business and the Community Health Systems (CYH) agencies acquired on January 1. The analyst remains bullish on the shares with a Buy rating and $58 price target. Almost Family in early trading is up 7%, or $3.45, to $53.10.

Baird analyst Whit Mayo downgraded Almost Family to Neutral from Outperform, noting that the stock has rallied 53% since November of 2016. While he is bullish on the fundamental outlook for the company and the sector and would not sell the stock, he believes there is "tremendous optimism" reflected at current levels, Mayo tells investors. The analyst raised his price target to $64 from $55 on Almost Family shares, which closed Friday at $61.30.

Jefferies sees home nursing rate cuts less than 50 basis points in 2019
As investors feared, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed to restructure its reimbursement system in 2019, which could translate to a home nursing rate cut of up to 6% in 2019, Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says in a research note. He adds that CMS has noted openness to a longer phase-in of this cut. He believes the net rate cuts, assuming a two-year phase in of the Home Health Groupings Model, would amount to less than 50 basis points in 2019. It is also noteworthy that fee-for-service Medicare home nursing only represents 51% of Almost Family's (AFAM) sales, 55% of Amedisys', and 59% of LHC Group's (LHCG), the analyst writes. Tanquilut believes the three week delay in the home health proposal's release drove the stocks down and "somewhat" baked the news into valuations.
