The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) published an initial overview of the proposed FY 2016 Hospice Payment Rule in NAHC Report on May 1, 2015. However, in order to provide more in-depth coverage, NAHC is developing a series of “IN FOCUS” articles that will be published over the next few weeks. Part 1 of the series has been published. Click here to see it. Part 1 focuses on hospice diagnosis reporting and CMS’ expectations of hospice responsibilities in this regard.
CMS, through its contractor, TMF Health Institute, will be providing an educational PEPPER webinar for home health and hospice agencies on April 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (CDT). The webinar will provide updates on the Q4FY14 PEPPER for Hospices, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Long-term Acute Care Hospitals, and Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities. Additionally, the webinar will provide a preview of the PEPPER reports home health agencies will be receiving for the first time this coming July.
