Hospice PECOS and Part D Prior Authorization

On March 13, 2014, CMS posted a notice on the Hospice Center webpage instructing hospices to be sure their information is correct and current in the PECOS system.

This request is directly related to the hospice and Part D prior authorization (PA) policy effective May 1, 2014. CMS, in its memo of March 10, 2014, instructed the Part D plan sponsors to obtain hospice contact information from the PECOS system and indicated this hospice information will be available in PECOS by May 1.

For more on hospice and Part D prior authorization, please see NAHC Report, March 13, 2014.

Hospices can view their PECOS information by going to the Hospice Center webpage of CMS and viewing the second announcement on this page.
