About the Event

Major scrutiny of the Hospice Benefit is well underway nationwide.  This webinar will review the details of both programs and what Hospices can expect.  The Special Focus Program (SFP), will monitor hospices identified as poor performers based on selected quality indicators. Hospices selected for the SFP will be under additional oversight to enable continuous improvement.  This required program includes the development and implementation of enforcement remedies for noncompliant hospice programs, as well as procedures for appealing determinations regarding these remedies. These enforcement actions can be imposed instead of, or in addition to, termination of the hospice program’s participation from the Medicare program. This webinar will help you identify if you are at risk and understand how to prepare.  This is a must attend webinar.
