NAHC Webinar: The Proposed FY2023 Hospice Payment Rule and Quality Updates

On March 30, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed FY2023 rule providing guidance on projected payment rates for the coming year and forthcoming updates to the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP).

NAHC’s hospice experts will discuss these issues and share some hospice data and insights from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission’s (MedPAC’s recent Report to Congress on Medicare Payment Policy.

Objectives:

  1. Discuss the proposed hospice payment rates and wage index changes planned for FY2023
