The 2018 Hospice Proposed Rule
with Beth Noyce, RN, BSJMC, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H
Webinar On-Demand

On April 27, 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule to update Medicare payment rates and the wage index for hospices serving Medicare beneficiaries during fiscal year 2018.

It’s vital that you understand the proposed rule because hospice providers can submit comments on the rule until June 26, 2017. CMS actually does consider public comments, and sometimes, alters the hospice final rule accordingly.

This free webinar on the 2018 Hospice Proposed Rule with renowned hospice consultant, Beth Noyce will help ensure you understand the proposed rule and are well equipped to submit your comments. 

Attend to learn about CMS’s proposed plans about the following:

  • New hospice CAHPS measures for 2018
  • The measures that will be reported on the Hospice Compare Site
  • A new data-collection mechanism — the Hospice Evaluation & Assessment Reporting Tool (HEART)
  • New solutions to better achieve transparency, flexibility, program simplification, and innovation

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the future of hospice and provide your input!
