Tuesday, February 9 | 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM | Hospice: Medicare Advantage Carve-In
Session Description: 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 will begin January 1, 2021. There are 9 Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAO) that will be participating and have coverage in multiple states. In addition to Hospice care there is an expansion of Palliative Care services that will be offered to patients through the MAO. 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 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.
