The Medicare Care Choices Model will provide a new option for Medicare beneficiaries to receive palliative care services from certain hospice providers while concurrently receiving services provided by their curative care providers. CMS will evaluate whether providing hospice services can improve the quality of life and care received by Medicare beneficiaries and increase patient satisfaction via this model of care.
The CMS Innovation Center hosted a webinar on Wednesday April 9, 2014 to provide an overview of the Medicare Care Choices Model and the application process. Subject matter experts from the CMS Innovation Center provided details and answered questions.
