CMS reminding hospice providers to address deficiencies in quality of care

CMS has created a fact sheet to show hospice providers how to create an effective plan of care. The agency notes an Office of Inspector General (OIG) report in 2019 found most hospices have at least one deficiency when it comes to their quality of care.

The fact sheet is expected to help hospice providers learn the principles of care planning, care coordination and common deficiencies, CMS noted in its weekly education newsletter Feb. 11.
