CMS created the Service Intensity Add-on (SIA) in recognition of patients and families needing more intensive care and services during the last seven days of life, and that hospices must be reimbursed for these very important services. However, two years after the 2016 Hospice Payment Rule instituted the SIA, it is clear that many hospice organizations have not optimized it.
Catherine Dehlin, Fazzi’s Director of Hospice Services provides a more complete understanding of the benefit and best practice strategies to help ensure patients and families receive high quality end of life care. You’ll receive specific and actionable recommendations in these areas:
- Direct care
- Scheduling and staffing
- Escalation of services
- Care planning
- Interdisciplinary team communication
