  • 1.  hospice rules

    Posted 28 days ago
    so  I thought that when we refer a patient and we say that we certify that the patient is terminally ill and   has less than 6 mo to live that we did our job
     I am being asked now  by the  hospice agency to sign another form that says the same They say Medicare wants my certification as well as the hospice director's on  one page    I   sa id so I had to do it  twice and  the bureaucrat  went on and on and on that I am not doing it twice

    I have not done this before I thought  Comments?
