The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services encourages all hospice providers to download the new Hospice Item Set Manual V1.02.
CMS will also host a National Provider Call on June 17, 2015 to cover updates made to the HIS Manual V1.02
V1.02 of the HIS Manual, along with a change table that outlines changes from V1.01 to V1.02, is now available for provider download in the ‘Downloads’ portion of the CMS website.
V1.02 of the HIS Manual provides clarifications of HIS item definitions and expectations for use. Providers should download and review V1.02 for the most up-to-date guidance on HIS item completion.
National Provider Call
To review updates made to V1.02 of the HIS Manual, CMS will host an HIS-focused National Provider Call on June 17, 2015, from 1:30 – 3:00 PM ET. This presentation will cover updates that were made to the HIS Manual from V1.01 to V1.02.
To register for the MLN Connects Call, please visit the MLN National Provider Calls and Events webpage.
The MLN Connects Call will be recorded and transcribed. This recording and transcription will be made available for provider download following the MLN Connects Call.
Since the call will focus on updates that were made to the HIS Manual from V1.01 to V1.02, it will be helpful for attendees to review V1.02 of the HIS Manual prior to the National Provider Call.
