Health Care Partner Rachel Hold-Weiss led a webinar for Hospice & Palliative Care Association of New York State (HPCANYS) members on April 28.

Rachel’s presentation centered on the Federal Register’s CY 2022 Home Health Prospective Payment System Rule Update Final Rule: Hospice Program Integrity: Survey and Enforcement Requirements. She discussed how these Program Integrity changes that are scheduled to go into effect in 2022 are and the new enforcement and penalty remedies that will be available to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to be imposed on a hospice with condition-level deficiencies.
