Hospice
Final Rule 2021

WEBINAR



OVERVIEW

The Hospice Final Rule updates the payment rates, wage indices and quality reporting requirements among other things. This webinar will provide a detail review of the 2021 Hospice Final Rule and the necessary changes for hospices to ensure that they are up to date with changes and be prepared for implementation of these changes as of their effective dates. This webinar will review the detail changes to the Hospice Election Statement that will go into effect October 2020. In addition to the Election Statement itself, there will also be an addendum requirement that will include many clinicians needing to fully understand what is allowed and not allowed under the Medicare Benefit and the regulations to support that decision. This webinar will assist in full preparation for implementation of these new requirements.
