What Do the CMS Hospice Cost Report Changes Mean to You?
Join The National Association for Home Care & Hospice and the Hospice Association of America for a FREE Teleconference that Explains the Changes
Join your peers, colleagues, and NAHC hospice subject matter experts for a free teleconference entitled, “What Do the CMS’ Hospice Cost Report Changes Mean to You?” The teleconference will be held on Thursday, September 4, 201 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST.
In April 2013 CMS proposed sweeping changes to the cost report under which hospices would be required to collect data related to costs in much greater detail and by levels of care. The changes will require that hospices significantly expand the manner in which they recognize costs in their accounting records. CMS just released the final hospice cost report changes and they will apply to freestanding hospices with cost reporting years beginning on or after October 1, 2014.
Register today, as space is limited.
