About the Event

This webinar will cover the details of the Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model – Hospice Benefit Component.  Medicare Advantage (MA) has long had coverage for home health patients, but there has never been coverage for Hospice under the MA benefit.  VBID is a demonstration that began January 1, 2021.  There are 13 Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAO) participating in 2022 and more expected in 2023.  In addition to Hospice care there is an expansion of Palliative Care services that will be offered to patients through the MAO.  The differences in coverage for an in-network vs. out-of-network provider will be reviewed.  CMS requires that MAOs provide beneficiaries with broad access to the complete original Medicare hospice benefit. This webinar will cover all known aspects of the demonstration and will prepare hospices for the reality that Medicare Advantage is now in the Hospice world.
