CMS to Hold Home Health, Hospice and DME Forum

Next week, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will hold an open door forum (ODF) to address the concerns of three unique healthcare areas relating to home health. 

The next Home Health, Hospice & Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Open Door Forum is scheduled for Wednesday, June 16, 2013 from 2:00pm—3:00pm, ET.

Topics of discussion include issues related to Home Health Prospective Payment System (PPS), the newly proposed competitive bidding program for DME and the Medicare Hospice benefit. 

CMS intends that combining all three discussion topics under one forum will be particularly useful for many participants.

“We continue to hold Special ODFs when individual policy issues require special attention,” writes CMS.

Timely announcements and clarifications regarding important rule making, agency program initiatives and other related areas are also included in the CMS forums.
