CMS to Host Home Health, Hospice & Durable Medical Equipment Open Door Forum
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced the new date for the next Home Health, Hospice & Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Open Door Forum (ODF) which has been rescheduled from June 21 to July 5, 2017, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. E.T.
The ODF is designed to address the concerns of three unique health care areas within the Medicare & Medicaid programs. Issues related to Home Health Protective Payment System (PPS), the newly proposed competitive bidding for DME, and the Medicare Hospice benefit are all topics the forum will cover. Many of the issues covered bridge concerns within all three settings and the combination of the topics within one forum has been useful to participants including CHAP agencies.
