Mitigate your compliance risks and reimbursement challenges with to-the-point guidance, best practices, and essential action items.

The improper payment rate for fee-for-service Medicare hospice services in 2019 was 9.7 percent, says a newly released report from the Department of Health and Human Services. The 9.7 percent rate represents $1.8 billion in erroneous payments to hospices. Is your practice ready for paybacks?

And, which sounds worse—a cap reduction or an across-the-board rate cut? In past years, MedPAC has recommended hospice rate freezes and even cuts. But this year, the influential advisory body to Congress also will urge lawmakers to reduce the hospice aggregate cap amount by 20 percent and to freeze hospice payment rates for 2021. How will your practice be impacted?

With heightened scrutiny on multiple fronts, now is not the time to go it alone.

Every year, CMS updates the rules and regulations, as well as issuing new ones. Hospice providers need to stay in the know to assess the impact of changes on their program—and to respond effectively to the new requirements.
