Hospice Recertification

  1. 0
    I know that a recertification cannot be done sooner than 15 days before the next cert period, but can my visit to ascertain whether clt is still appropriate for hospice be done prior to that? Does anyone have Medicare reg regarding this? Thanks!

    In fact, your IDT should have determined the ongoing need for hospice prior to the 15 day mark. The nursing recommendation comes from your ongoing assessments of the patient rather than a one visit assessment.
