What Medicare Advantage and VBID Mean for Hospices

Recent changes in Medicare Advantage rules in addition to a new Value Based Insurance Design (VBID) proposal might allow greater flexibility for hospices to play a role in end of life care within Medicare Advantage plans. What do Hospices need to know? This 3-segment interview includes discussion of these topics:

  • What kind of market penetration do Medical Advantage plans have?  Does it vary by geography?
  • How are end-of-life benefits managed under Medicare Advantage currently?
  • What do recent changes in flexibility of Medicare Advantage Supplemental Benefits mean for hospice and palliative care providers?
  • What can hospices do to prepare for the VBID and any potential changes that come from this exploration?

Mollie is also the Chief Strategy Officer of the National Partnership for Hospice Innovation, a collective of 60 not-for-profit organizations focusing on innovative models of care and the proper delivery of hospice benefits.
