Since release of Change Request (CR) 8358 (Additional Data Reporting Requirements for Hospice Claims) in July 2013, hospices and hospice industry stakeholders have been wrestling with how to capture the newly required data on the claim. Given the amount and type of data that must be reported beginning April 1, 2014, it’s not too early for hospice programs to begin tackling the significant challenges associated with CR 8358 compliance.
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s Hospice Association of America is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 1 p.m. EASTERN on this important topic. The registration fee per site is $125; a recorded version of the webinar will also be available for purchase. CEs will be provided.

This webinar will provide the following to participants:
- Review the four categories of additional data
- Review the six data elements required
- Discuss the many outstanding questions
- Provide practical tips to be used in meeting the new requirements
Faculty will focus on the data elements that are required in order to have a 5010 compliant claim but that are not necessarily evident in the CR, with special emphasis on the drug reporting requirements. A review of questions submitted to CMS and their answers, as we have them at the time of the webinar, will be provided.
