The Medicare Care Choices Model
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.
Last week CMS hosted an introductory webinar and they will be hosting an Open Door Forum (ODF) call on Weds., April 16, 2014 from 2 - 3 p.m. This will allow providers, beneficiary advocacy groups, and other interested parties to learn more about the Medicare Care Choices Model. Material to be discussed during the call will be available prior to the call.
