On December 2 from 1-2 p.m. EST/ 10-11 a.m. PT, Abt Associates, a contractor for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, will present insights in their development of a new hospice payment mode for VNAA members.
Abt is looking broadly at hospice cost report, claims, and beneficiary data to gain a better idea of hospice care delivery patterns. Additionally, Abt is analyzing care patterns related to the hospice face-to-face to determine whether the new requirement is having an impact on hospice use.

Trends in Hospice Cost Reports
Trends in General Inpatient Utilization (GIP)
Impact of the Face-to-Face Requirement on Hospice Benefit Periods
