NHPCO Is committed to helping the field understand ongoing issues of importance, one example is Medicare Advantage in hospice. Building on our collaboration with the Better Medicare Alliance, Edo Banach sits down with BMA President and CEO, Allyson Y. Schwartz to discuss opportunities and concerns on all sides of the issue. In June, our two organizations will hold a second invite only convening to further this conversation.
Jon R. sits down Judi Lund Person as she looks back at last year's Proposed Hospice Wage Index Rule and cites various elements where data are critical. We expect the next proposed rule to come out later next month, how will data play a part? Judi stressed the importance of data and speculates on what elements will continue to be a factor throughout 2019 and 2020 and beyond.
