Potential reduction in Hospice reimbursement

There is a possibility that Medicare will phase out an annual adjustment to the Hospice wage index in the next 3 years. I know that many of you have been blessed to receive services from Hospice. Read the response of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to the Bush Administration’s proposal to reduce funds to Hospice Centers all over the U.S. Get in touch with your representatives from the Senate and Congress and let them know that you are against this proposal. For those of you that will be caregivers of terminally ill people in the future, you too need to protest because from my experience with Hospice it will be the best thing that happens to you and yours.
