This hospice webcast will cover hospice general inpatient care (GIP), which is for pain control or symptom management provided in an inpatient facility that cannot be managed in other settings.
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has had concerns about the possible misuse of GIP, which is the second most expensive level of hospice care. The goal is to reduce the number of length of stays. Therefore, the objective for the webcast is to help providers understand proper admission for GIP, medical necessity and discharges.
The webcast will be held on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at 10 a.m. ET.
You can register for the webinar at our event website.
