The FY2020 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Rate Update and Hospice Quality Reporting Requirements brought changes of great interest.  These range from wage index updates, to rebasing the level of care rates, to election statement changes.  This session will analyze the changes and comments that were sent in between the proposed and final rules to provide insight into the current state and future of hospice.  The Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) is continuously being massaged and current updates will be reviewed during this webinar.
