IHHC Virtual Annual Conference


Speaker: Melinda A. Gaboury, CEO
Friday, March 5 | 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM | F13 – Hospice 2021 Final Payment Rule

CMS released the FY2021 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Rate Update. In addition to information regarding the payment update (estimated at 2.6 percent) and related issues, CMS included in the rule guidance on the requirement for October 2020 that hospices modify their patient election statements and offer an addendum to patients and others outlining all items that the patient receives that will not be covered by the hospice due to them being unrelated to the hospice terminal prognosis. Hospices have only a few weeks following this session to gear up for this significant new requirement.


1. Review of CMS hospice rebasing rate updates and implications for future payment
2. Identification of CMS’ continuing concerns and analysis of hospice data gathered/shared by CMS, MedPAC, and others
3. Detail the Hospice Election Statement Update & Addendum Requirement
