Since that time, representatives of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) have had several discussions with the new home health and hospice RAC. The three home health and hospice Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) – NGS, CGS, and Palmetto GBA, have all announced forthcoming webinar opportunities for home health and hospice organizations to interface with the new RAC entity; notices for the three MAC web events are provided below.
