The Ongoing Evolution of Palliative Care

The Ongoing Evolution of Palliative Care is proudly presented to you by National Association for Home Care & Hospice. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

The past several years have seen a significant increase in interest, demand, and development of programs that serve patients that do not elect or meet eligibility criteria for home health or hospice and would otherwise fall between the cracks of traditional health care service lines. Palliative Care and Advanced Illness Management (AIM) programs remain an enigma because they lack specific regulations or guidance in terms of setting, reimbursement, operations, stage in the disease process, or delivery models. At the same time, AIM programs are challenging financially if reimbursed only from traditional Medicare billing. This session will review the goals, models, and reimbursement for key variations of Palliative Care and Advanced Illness Management programs, and provide insights into the clinical and financial management of these programs. As part of the conference’s emphasis on alternative payment models, the session will detail existing arrangements which are outside traditional Medicare payment streams.

Learning Outcomes:

• Identify key models of palliative care/advance illness management, including the Medicare Care Choices model
• Explain the key payment mechanisms for palliative care services outside of traditional Medicare reimbursement
• Describe key factors for success in managing various models of palliative care delivery
