Determine Your Hospice Payment Rates.

CGS announced yesterday that they have developed and released a Hospice Payment Rate Calculator for hospice providers to determine their payment rates.

Hospice providers can access the calculator by selecting “Hospice Rates” from the “Rates and Fee Schedules” web page here, and then selecting the “Hospice Payment Rates Calculator” link.

You will then need to enter the Year (Fiscal year of the services), State, and County or CBSA code where the services were provided.  Once entered the following rate information for the selected County/CBSA will display.

  • CBSA code
  • Wage Index
  • Routine Home Care (per day)
  • Cont Home Care (per hour)
  • Inpt Respite Care (per day)
  • Gen Inpt Care (per day)

CGS also has several other rates and fees schedules available.

If your Medicare Administrative Contractor is Palmetto GBA, their Hospice Rate calculator is located here.
