Product Description

Mitigate your financial risk with this hospice regulation compliance tune-up

Hospice regulations and requirements change so frequently that it can be a challenge for hos-pice agencies to stay current. Since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) up-date payment calculations and quality reporting requirements annually, it is essential for you to proactively arm yourself to mitigate financial risk. 

Not sure how to interpret and implement FY 2019 Hospice Final Rule? Attend this webinar with home health and hospice expert Beth Noyce to untangle the complexities of hospice payment rates, the FY 2019 hospice cap, and new reporting requirements. With this knowledge, you can provide high-quality care and upgrade your regulatory compliance to avoid losing profits, pay-ing fines, and stressing about CMS scrutiny.  No more feeling your way around and hoping you get it right!

At the end of this instructive webinar, you will fully understand CMS’s 2019 Hospice Final Rule, know how to revise your fiscal policies to meet the requirements of the payment plan set for October 1, 2018; and be able to take appropriate safeguards to ensure the best results for your agency. Additionally, Noyce’s recommendations will teach you to confidently prepare for fu-ture financial changes so your hospice agency can be ahead of the curve in both quality and profitability.
