The coordination of benefits process between the hospice Medicare benefit and Part D is in transition – and the kindest observation to make about it is that it’s a horrible mess. This webinar by Susan Balfour, BA, RN considers where you are now, where you might be going, and what may ease the pain along the way. According to the 2012 OIG reports – “Medicare Could Be Paying Twice for Prescription Drugs for Beneficiaries in Hospice”. Starting with the 2012 report, Susan will work her way forward to the March 10, 2014 Part D Payment for Drugs for Beneficiaries Enrolled in Hospice.
