Experts,

Please confirm if Section J:1400 - Prognosis should be checked-off when MD orders hospice admission.

Under the hospice program benefit regulations, a physician is required to document in the medical record a life expectancy of less than 6 months, so if a resident is on hospice the expectation is that the documentation is in the medical record. RAI, pJ-24

Only then will you code J1400 = 1
