New at Noyce Consulting — hospice proposed rule
You're likely too busy with patient care and follow up from your latest CMS-inspired QAPI project to know what Medicare plans to change in the hospice world next. Even if you had time, would you read all 140 pages of regulatory language in the the FY 2017 hospice proposed rule CMS posted April 21?
That's why I've been studying it. So I can fill you in on some important important proposals CMS published. For example:
Submit your comments here if you see things in hospice differently than does CMS' proposals and the rationale for proposals in the FY 2017 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Rate Update and Hospice Quality Reporting Requirements (FY 2017 Hospice Proposed Rule) posted Thursday (4.28.16).
Your views could persuade CMS to write a more hospice-strengthening version for the FY 2017 Hospice Final Rule.
