Product Description

Guide For Drafting An Agreement Between A Hospital And Hospice.


CMS has recently issued new rules regarding recertification of hospice patients and physician oversight. These rules as well as recent guidance evidence closer scrutiny of hospice programs by Medicare and state Medicaid agencies. Since most hospices are conducted at inpatient hospital settings, health care facilities are indirectly tasked with making sure that hospices are in full compliance.

The critical documents to address compliance issues are the agreements between the hospice and hospital and between the medical director/physician and hospice program. In addition to provisions addressing the new rules, it’s essential to make sure the contracts address responsibilities and liabilities of each party, adequate insurance and indemnification provisions and detailed compliance terms.

Register now with this 60-minute information packed event where our expert speaker Wayne J. Miller, Esq, will uncover the new rules issued by CMS which you need to know to stay compliant. Also learn the essentials of contract between the hospice and hospital.

Here is what you'll learn:
