This webinar will cover the details of the Value-Based Insurance Design Model – Hospice Benefit Component. Medicare Advantage (MA) has long had coverage for home health patients, but there has never been coverage for hospice. VBID is a demonstration that began January 1, 2021. There have been many changes to the Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAO) participating in 2024 as the demonstration has now been extended through 2030. The differences in coverage for an in-network versus an out-of-network provider will be reviewed as will the allowance of MAO plans to force patients to elect in-network only. CMS requires that MAOs provide beneficiaries with broad access to the complete original Medicare hospice benefit.
This webinar will cover all known aspects of the demonstration and will prepare hospices for the reality that Medicare Advantage is now in the hospice world to stay.
