Medicare Advantage & Hospice – The Time Has Come


The time has come for Medicare Advantage (MA) to offer coverage to hospice patients under the MA benefit, previously exclusive to home health patients. There are nine Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) that will participate and offer coverage in multiple states. In addition to hospice care, an expansion of palliative care services will be offered to patients through the MAO . This session will address the Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model – Hospice Benefit Component, and the VBID demonstration which will begin on January 1, 2021, through December 2024. CMS is testing how the Hospice Benefit Component can improve beneficiary care through greater care coordination, reduced fragmentation, and transparency in line with recommendations by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), and others. CMS will require MAOs to provide beneficiaries with broad access to the complete original Medicare hospice benefit. This webinar will cover all aspects of the demonstration and prepare hospices for the reality that Medicare Advantage is now in the hospice world.
