Hospice providers who want to improve healthcare outcomes, reduce costs, and expand revenue streams are adding palliative care to their practice.  Palliative care can benefit patients who are not yet terminally ill and reduce hospitalizations and ER use – both key metrics for measuring value-based purchasing.

While the benefits of palliative care to providers and patients are potentially significant, making this business model work is challenging.  Do palliative care patients qualify for Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement?  What services constitute palliative care?  What licensure is required?  How can fraud and abuse issues be avoided?  This webinar will address the rise in palliative care, how it relates to hospice, and considerations for establishing a palliative care program, including payer sources, compliance, licensure, and use of physician services.
