Members may have seen the recent articles about hospice appearing in USA Today by journalist Kelly Kennedy, “Medicare costs for hospice up 70%” (08/08/11) and “Hospice lobbyists battle over Medicare payment system” (08/16/11).  First, I wanted to let you know that all of us at NHPCO have seen these articles and I have responded – both in a letter to the editor and op-ed submission.

J. Donald Schumacher
July 22, 2011

Recent attention in the media has turned a bright spotlight on purported problems in hospice.  Only yesterday, NHPCO issued a Regulatory Alert summarizing information put out by the OIG, focused on hospice care in the nursing home, as several previous OIG reports have done. Then, this morning, an article by a Bloomberg News reporter brought much of the same OIG information out again in a more sensationalized, investigative fashion.
