Hospice - Where We Are and Where We're Headed
This webinar summarizes some of the proposed changes in the FY2019 Hospice Proposed Rule including payment and hospice quality reporting program updates. We delve into not just the FY2019 and recent Hospice Rules but also CMS comments, as well as those of MedPAC, and recent activities outside of hospice but impacting hospices related to payment and quality reporting. We analyze this information and provide insight into what this means, as a whole, for the future of hospice and what hospices should be doing to prepare for the future. The standardized assessment tool, HEART, and hospice payment data, and the focus of CMS going forward will be discussed.

Hospice documentation has recently come under scrutiny by CMS through both ADRs and UPIC/ZPIC. It is becoming more apparent that rock solid hospice documentation is the only way to prevent recoupment of hospice dollars. Its one thing to say that a patient is terminal, but another to prove it in documentation. This webinar is a bare bones, back to basics approach to hospice documentation.WATCH ON DEMAND
