CMS wants to help hospice providers prepare for the start of the Hospice Benefit Component on January 1, 2021. In November 2020, Home Health & Hospice Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) mailed a letter and checklist to hospice providers with overlapping service areas with participating plans. This letter and checklist contained participating plans’ information and billing and claims processing educational materials. We have posted these materials on our website for your reference, organized by state here.

If you have questions about the Model, please contact the VBID Model team at VBID@cms.hhs.gov.
