As a hospice, are we required to fill out the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) questionnaire upon admission and then every 90 days?

In accordance with guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), all providers are required to complete the MSP questionnaire upon admission. The 90-day requirement is directed at hospitals in the Internet Only Manual (IOM), Publication 100-05, Chapter 3, Section 20.1.2. However, we also encourage home health and hospice providers to review the questionnaire at least every 90 days. Payer sources can change at any time; therefore, it is important that providers stay informed of the beneficiary’s status in the Medicare program.
