Show Me the Money: New Study Confirms Hospice Saves Money for Medicare



A study published by NORC at the University of Chicago, a nonpartisan research organization, concluded that the Hospice Benefit saved Medicare $3.5 billion in 2019. The data behind that figure, and the study’s related findings, show that the value of the Medicare Hospice Benefit appears to be at odds with CMS’s regulatory priorities. In this episode, Husch Blackwell’s Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki dig into the numbers, talk about the NORC study, and its potential impact on hospices and the Hospice Benefit.
