Hospice Groups: CMS Should Reconsider Payment Rate Calculation Methods


The proposed Medicare reimbursement rate hikes for some levels of hospice care is a positive move, according to comments on the 2020 proposed rule submitted to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) by hospice industry organizations, but they also voiced concerns regarding how those rates are calculated as well as the potential for increased regulatory scrutiny of higher-acuity care. CMS in late April released its annual proposed rule that outlines the agency’s regulatory priorities for hospice in the coming year, including payment rates. The rule called for a 2.7% cut in routine home care payments and a corresponding 2.7% increase in payments for continuous home care, general inpatient care, and inpatient respite care. A key motivator for the revisions: Current rates for those three service levels amount to less than the cost of providing those types of care. However, the corresponding cut to routine home care payments could end up costing hospices, because more than 90% of the care they provide falls into that category.
