CMMI to Join LeadingAge Members to Discuss Hospice Benefit in Medicare Advantage Demonstration

On October 10 at 1pm CT, the LeadingAge Hospice Member Network will host staff from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to discuss the Value Based Insurance Design (VBID) Hospice Benefit Component. In September, CMS released a list of Managed Care Organization’s that will participate in next year’s VBID demonstration. There are three fewer plans participating in the hospice component this year than last year, along with two new plans. 

Starting in 2026, participating plans will have more flexibility to require their enrollees to only receive hospice services from hospice providers in their network, as long as the plan meets CMS’s qualitative and quantitative network adequacy requirements. We encourage members to join the call on October 10 to hear more about the future of this demonstration. To register click here.
