CMS has posted FY 2015 Medicaid rates by level of care for hospice services. Medicaid hospice rates vary slightly from those of Medicare since Medicare rates include the assumption that providers are able to assess copayments for prescription medications to beneficiaries. CMS provides two tables with rates: one for hospices that have compiled with Medicare quality reporting requirements and one for those providers who have not submitted the required data and are subject to a 2 percentage point reduction in their market basket update. As part of the tables, CMS also provides the portion of payment that is subject to the wage index.
