To remain compliant and provide quality end-of-life care, hospices must understand and meet CMS requirements for the two higher levels of care. With a recent increase in CMS scrutiny regarding continuous care and general inpatient care, especially in nursing homes and assisted living settings, it is more important than ever for your agency to understand CMS expectations and regulations regarding clinical care and documentation requirements in these settings.

Join us for a free lunch & learn session presented by pioneering hospice physician Marcia Levetown, MD, MMM, HMDC, FAAHPM. Dr. Levetown will share the findings of the OIG and CMS expectations of hospice levels of care.
