The Hospice Conditions of Participation require that the terminal illness and the co-morbidities impacting care must be coded. CMS recently commented that they intend to develop a case mix system for hospice much like the Prospective Payment System developed for home health. To get accurate information for the development of the case mix scoring system, CMS needs hospices to code co-morbidities. Never before has it been more important to get the diagnosis coding correct in the hospice industry. Non-compliance and sloppiness will hurt your payment.
