FY2019 Hospice Payment Proposed Rule Available for Comment

Monday, April 30, 2018

The FY2019 hospice payment rule is now on display at the Office of the Federal Register, for a 60-day comment period.  The projected update for payments in FY2019 is estimated at 1.8%.  Please note that the factors that make up the payment update are subject to change, so the final payment update (released in late July) may vary from this somewhat.

 

Here is a link to the proposed rule:     https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/05/08/2018-08773/medicare-program-fy-2019-hospice-wage-index-and-payment-rate-update-and-hospice-quality-reporting

 

AHPCO is in the process of working with our National Partner, NHPCO to review the rule and summarize the key changes for members as well as make comments as needed.
