Hospices Must Meet Aggregate Cap Deadline Or Risk Payment Suspension

Posted on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 1:51 PM

The National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) has put together a list of issues related to the new CMS requirements for hospices to self-calculate and report their aggregate cap status to their assigned Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) within five months following the close of the cap year. During this time frame, hospices are also required to pay back or make payment arrangements for any liability. There is some confusion among hospice providers about the applicability of the requirement and how to meet it on a timely basis. NAHC has put together an article that provides answers to frequently-asked questions related to the hospice cap reporting requirement and supplied information on how providers can meet the requirement.
