What’s In Store? The Proposed FY2018 Hospice Payment Rule

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Program Description:

In late April, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the FY2018 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Rate Update and Hospice Quality Reporting Requirements (HQRP), the mechanism by which CMS alerts the hospice industry to payment and policy changes it is proposing for the forthcoming year, as well as items it has under consideration for potential future implementation. As part of this program, NAHC’s hospice experts will outline the host of changes in store for the evolving Hospice Quality Reporting Program, discuss the latest hospice utilization and patterns of care that CMS is tracking, and identify areas of concern to CMS that could be used as the basis for future policy changes or program integrity efforts.

Program Faculty:

  • William A. Dombi, Esq., Vice President for Law, NAHC
  • Theresa Forster, Vice President for Hospice Policy & Programs, NAHC
