Hospice Agencies That Failed Quality Reporting Requirements Will Be Mailed Notices by June 29

Posted on Friday, June 24, 2016 1:07 PM

CMS announced that hospice agencies that are not in compliance with Hospice Quality Reporting requirements for the 2015 calendar year will be notified by mail. For FY2017 and after, CMS will study both Hospice Item Set (HIS) and Hospice CAHPS® survey data from January 1 through December 31 to determine the Annual Payment Update (APU) compliance threshold.

If you receive a notice of non-compliance, you have the opportunity to submit a request for reconsideration on quality data submissions affecting your FY 2017 APU. The instructions can be found in your notification letter and on the Reconsideration Requests webpage.

CMS plans to publish an online list of hospice providers that have met the quality reporting requirements.
