Hospice agencies have enough to juggle in a typical year– but in the year of a PHE continuing, there is not enough time in a day. Yet, CMS continues to change things, and we need to stay informed to ensure compliance and to protect your payment! This session is the quintessential “what are all of the updates I need to know, and how do they apply to me” webinar for Hospice Agencies. Up to the minute, we will review the CMS updates in the Final Payment Rule including the new Claims Based Quality Measures, updates to the Election Addendum, survey updates, audits, etc- and most importantly–what it means to your entire team.
