Untangling the Mystery of Hospice Transfers

The Untangling the Mystery of Hospice Transfers Webcast will be held at 2:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

We would like to invite you to attend a collaborative webcast about Medicare hospice transfers hosted by your Hospice Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs), CGS, National Government Services and Palmetto GBA. The Medicare hospice benefit allows a beneficiary to transfer from one hospice agency to another once every benefit period without interruption. Whether you are transferring a beneficiary’s care to an agency across town or the country, the Medicare regulations remain the same. In order to transfer a beneficiary and preserve the benefit period/election, additional documentation and billing are required. During this webcast, the MACs will explain:

  • Medicare transfer regulations
  • Transferring hospice agency responsibility
  • Receiving hospice agency responsibility
  • Billing and coding for transfers
  • Process for transfer disputes
  • Answer general transfer related questions from the audience

Register Here. You may register for this webcast at any time, but by doing it early you will:

  • Receive reminder emails two days and two hours prior to the start of the webcast
  • Save time on the day of the webcast

The audio for this presentation is broadcast through your computer speakers or headphones. Please test your audio devices prior to the start of the presentation. A telephone conference line is not used for the webcast.
A copy of the presentation and addition resources will be available in the webcast once it begins.
