On April 9, the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) announced it will hold a Home Health, Hospice and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Open Door Forum conference call on April 16 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET. The forum will provide providers, beneficiaries, and advocacy groups an opportunity to learn more about the Medicare Care Choice Model.
According to the announcement "the Medicare Care Choices Model will provide a new option for Medicare beneficiaries to receive palliative care services from certain hospice providers while concurrently receiving services provided by their curative care providers. CMS will evaluate whether providing hospice services can improve the quality of life and care received by Medicare beneficiaries and increase patient satisfaction via this model of care."
