About the Event

Hospice has historically been a traditional Medicare-only benefit. But participating Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) will include hospice in their benefit packages throughout the four-year demonstration. For 2022, the second year of the VBID Model, additional MAOs have been added. This webinar will assist hospices in understanding key elements of working with MAO plans participating in the demonstration. Key elements of the demonstration will include participants and implementation progression.

  • Outline supplemental benefits available to patients beyond traditional Medicare
  • Discuss the phases of the VBID Model and the impact on out-of-network providers
