COVID-19 Hospice How-To Series: $30 Billion in Relief Funds Made Available, but Strings are Attached!



View the Transcript.

On Friday, April 10, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services began disbursing $30 billion in relief funds directly to Medicare providers, including hospices. The use of those funds, however, is subject to a number of terms and conditions that raise significant questions. Failure to adhere to those terms and conditions could require a hospice to return those funds or result in liability during future audits or enforcement actions. In this episode, Hospice & Palliative Care attorneys Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki analyze those term and conditions, and provide a framework for how hospices should begin reviewing these requirements in order to establish systems for compliance that mitigate risk.
