Getting It Right: Hospice Medicare Conditions for Payment
It is important that hospices focus on meeting the requirements for Medicaid as well as other payers, and in this presentation we will be closely examining the Medicare conditions for payment -- which is often the model for Medicaid and those other insurance companies. In addition to the patient having to be Medicare eligible, the hospice must also have a Certification of Terminal Illness (CTI), valid election of hospice care, Notice of Election, Plan of Care, and participation in the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP).
This course will provide you with the information necessary to understand each component of the Medicare conditions for payment, and what it means for you and the hospice you work for.
