FREE Hospice Teleconference on CMS’ Final Hospice Payment Regulations
Teleconference held on August 13 at 1.00pm EST. First 300 registrants can participate
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice and the Hospice Association of America invite you to a FREE Hospice Teleconference on CMS’ Final Hospice Payment Regulations titled "What Do the CMS’ Final Hospice Payment Regulations for FY 2015 and Revised Hospice/Part D Guidance Mean to You?"
On May 2, CMS issued proposed regulations to govern hospice payment for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015; these proposed regulations included numerous policy changes that would affect hospice organizations. It is anticipated that CMS will issue final rules at any time and this teleconference provides an opportunity for hospice stakeholders to learn CMS’ final decisions on these pending policy changes. Additionally, on July 18, in response to significant pressure from hospice organizations, beneficiary advocates, and Medicare Part D plans, CMS issued revised guidance related to its prior authorization policy for processing of drug coverage under Part D for hospice patients. This teleconference will cover key issues related to CMS’ revised guidance. Faculty will include: Val J. Halamandaris, NAHC President; Theresa M. Forster, NAHC Vice President for Hospice Policy & Programs and Katie Wehri, Hospice Operations.
