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.

CMS proposal to have little impact on home nursing providers, says Jefferies
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' proposal last night, seeking to scale down the joint replacement bundled program and eliminate the cardiac rehab bundle program, will have minimal impact on home nursing providers, if finalized as proposed, Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. The analyst's checks suggest that provider referral patterns have already shifted and are unlikely to reverse, even absent Care for Joint Replacement's incentives. He notes that Almost Family (AFAM), Amedisys (AMED) and LHC Group (LHCG) have seen fairly minimal benefit to-date from the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement program.

Amedisys business is performing well, says Oppenheimer
After attending meetings with management, Oppenheimer analyst Michael Wiederhorn says Amedisys' business is performing well. The company's core operations are well positioned into the back half of the year, with business development efforts expected to benefit admission trends, Wiederhorn tells investors in a research note. He takes a constructive view on the shares, while admitting there is a "major overhang" from the Medicare proposal for 2019. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Amedisys with a $60 price target.
