Understanding the 2020 Hospice Final Rule

Understanding the 2020 Hospice Final Rule

with Catherine Dehlin, RN, BSN, CHPN, CHCM - Director of Hospice Services at Fazzi Associates

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have published the 2020 Hospice Final Rule, which includes a significant rebasing of hospice payment rates. Rates for higher acuity levels of care are increasing, while rates for routine home care are decreasing. Because routine home care represents about 98% of hospice days, this change will mean a reduction for many providers.

The 2020 final rule also includes a complex new requirement for an addendum to election statements. The addendum must provide details as to the care, services, and drugs that the hospice determines to be unrelated to the patient’s terminal illness and will not be covered under the Medicare hospice benefit.

Implementation of the election addendum has been delayed until October 2020, but other provisions of the 2020 hospice final rule go into effect on October 1, 2019, so your time to prepare is very brief. The time to begin is now.

Watch this free, 60-minute webinar presented by Catherine Dehlin, RN, BSN, CHPN, CHCM, Director of Hospice Services for Fazzi Associates. In this important presentation, Ms. Dehlin will help you understand these new requirements, evaluate their impact on your processes, and create an action plan to succeed.

Watch and learn:

  • How rebased payment rates for CHC, IRC, and GIP levels of care will affect your hospice
  • Why rebased payments may signal a new level of compliance scrutiny for hospices
  • The new requirements for an addendum to the hospice election statement

Don’t miss this opportunity for you and your team to learn from one of hospice’s most influential thought leaders and prepare for 2020!
