Hospice Provider Application


NHPCO asks members to support the organization relative to their capacity. To that end, dues are based on patients admitted in the previous 12 months. Dues are $9.75 per patient admitted in the previous 12 months, with a minimum of $500.

For large programs, the per-admission rate drops to $5 per admission for admissions 2501-5000 and $4 per admission above 5000.

Note, only count unique and unduplicated admissions. If a patient went off service and was subsequently readmitted you should only count them once. Similarly, do not include patients that were admitted more than 12 months ago, even if they were on service within the past 12 months.
