CAHPS Hospice Survey Participation Exemption

The Participation Exemption for Size Form for the calendar year (CY) 2022 CAHPS Hospice Survey data collection and reporting requirements is now available. Hospices that served fewer than 50 survey-eligible decedents/caregivers in CY 2021 (January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 [or from assignment of CCN]) can apply for an exemption from participation in the CAHPS Hospice Survey for CY 2022.

To view or complete the 2022 Participation Exemption for Size Form, please click here. The Participation Exemption for Size Form will be available to complete and submit online until December 31, 2022.

Please note, exemptions on the basis of size are active for one year only. If a hospice continues to meet the eligibility requirements for this exemption in subsequent years, the organization will need to again request the exemption.

If a hospice has questions regarding the Participation Exemption for Size process or how to complete the Participation Exemption for Size Form, please contact the CAHPS Hospice Survey Project Team: or 1-844-472-4621.
