Description

Effective management of the hospice revenue cycle is an evolving challenge, as cash flow optimization efforts must always be balanced against potential compliance threats. Recent Office of Inspector General reports suggests the possibility of increased scrutiny of the hospice benefit, which often comes in the form of increased program integrity activity impacting the revenue cycle. While Medicare Advantage coverage for hospice is a distinct possibility, individual states continue to adopt Medicaid managed care, and the hospice benefit is drawing interest from both Medicare and Medicaid program integrity contractors. Additionally, the Medicare targeted probe and educate (TPE) process is focused on hospice, significantly increasing the consequences of poor revenue cycle or related document management practices.
