|The Non-Clinical Side of Hospice Relatedness Determinations|
|Dec 12, 2013 - Webinar|
| The hospice regulatory arena is constantly evolving, making it difficult for hospices to stay ahead of the curve. While determinations regarding whether a condition or symptom is "related to" the terminal illness are not a new challenge, hospices are beginning to see the implications of such decisions through pharmacy audits and increased government scrutiny. This webinar will address past and present guidance on relatedness determinations, recent government investigations on the issue, and key considerations to help hospices substantiate and support such determinations. Join us to learn about the legal framework for relatedness determinations, including the standard and burden of proof that hospices should meet to defend determination challenges.
