Last month, we discussed the Congressional Ways and Means Committee's support for reducing regulatory burden (Episode 48). Since that podcast, CMS released the proposed rule on reducing regulatory burden for all medicare providers. What in the proposed rule will affect hospice? Judi and Jennifer pick up the discussion about the specifics that relate to hospice.
We welcome special guest, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, President and CEO of the Better Medicare Alliance who sits down with Edo Banach about the complex issue of Medicare Advantage in hospice. NHPCO is working with BMA to more fully explore issues that we as a provider community need to be familiar with. MA is a polarizing topic for many, but regardless all hospice providers should be informed because if we're proactively talking about this others will be doing this for us.
