CMS wants to help hospice providers prepare for the continuation of the Hospice Benefit Component on January 1, 2023. In early 2023, 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 contains participating plans’ information and billing and claims processing educational materials. This year's letter and checklist are available: CY 2023 VBID Hospice Provider Letter and Checklist (PDF).

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