Prepare for Cost Report Changes, Wage Index, Hospice Compare Changes, & Likely RAC Audit.

However there are some good news as well, starting in October, you’ll have a bit more money to meet your many obligations. CMS’s proposed rule for hospice payment has increased Medicare payment rates and wage index for FY 2019.

In future years, hospices also may see changes to the labor portion figure for their rates. “We are currently analyzing [cost report] data for possible use in updating the labor portion of the hospice payment rates,” CMS explains in the rule.

The rate increase is good news for hospice providers, but with payment rising there is going to be increase in regulatory audits. The hospice industry continues to draw fraud-fighting attention from the feds, as shown in a recent report on the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program operated jointly by the OIG and DOJ. The HHS Office of Inspector General reports $2.4 billion in judgements and settlements in fiscal year 2017 thanks to its fraud-fighting efforts, according to the recently issued HCFAC report.
