Attention: Hospices

CMS has issued a final memorandum on March 10, 2014, called, “Part D Payment for Drugs for Beneficiaries Enrolled in Hospice-Final 2014 Guidance.” The memorandum provides guidance for Part D sponsors and hospices as it relates to payment for drugs for hospice beneficiaries in 2014. The CMS understands that there are still some outstanding issues that exist, for 2015 and beyond. For these issues, CMS states, “future rulemaking will be required at which time we will take all commenter submission into consideration.” The effective day of this policy clarification is May 1, 2014.
