The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a public data set, the Home Health Agency Utilization and Payment Public Use File (“Home Health Agency PUF”), with information on services provided to Medicare beneficiaries by home health agencies.  The Home Health Agency PUF contains information on utilization, payment (Medicare payment and standard payment), and submitted charges organized by CMS Certification Number (6-digit provider identification number), Home Health Resource Group (HHRG), and state of service.
