Is your hospice small enough to be exempt from Hospice CAHPS? Deadline for the application for exemption is looming!
For the calendar year (CY) 2016 data collection period, Medicare-certified hospices that have served fewer than 50 survey-eligible decedents/caregivers in CY 2015 (January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015) can apply for an exemption from CAHPS Hospice Survey CY 2016 data collection and reporting requirements.
Hospice CAHPS® Exemption for Size Deadline: August 10
Exemptions on the basis of size are active for one year only; you must resubmit an application even if you applied last year.
