CMS Corrects Technical Errors Related To Hospice Quality Reporting Program

The April 30, 2015 publication of the Federal Register will include corrections to the hospice quality program. The two changes include an omission and a date of correction related to the CAHPS hospice survey.

The corrections are the following:

“On page 50492, in Table 8, we omitted the description of a quality reporting measure “Providing Support for Religious and Spiritual Beliefs”. We are adding the omitted measure to the table.

On Page 50493, in Table 9, we listed an incorrect deadline for the “Monthly data collection April-June 2015 (Q2).” We inadvertently provided November 1, 2015 as the deadline. We are correcting this error to reflect the correct monthly data collection deadline date of November 11, 2015.”
