How to Prepare Now

Every year the hospice final rule brings new challenges and, in some cases, hope for better things to come. The 2019 Hospice Final Rule is modest in its policy changes, but the news it brings is challenging. Hospices will see an increase in payments overall, but those who fail to meet quality reporting requirements will see a reduction. The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) has updated the hospice quality reporting timeline, introduced a major change in the role of physician assistants, and much more.
