Reimbursement for Hospice Patient Care

When you refer your patient to Hope Hospice, he/she must designate an attending physician.  As a designated attending physician, you may follow your patient and continue to bill Medicare Part B for patient visits and Care Plan Oversight.  In the event you do not choose to follow your patients, they may transfer to our Medical Directors service with the reassurance that they will receive the highest quality of care from Hope Hospices clinical team. Any issues please call us at 830-625-7500 and asking for the Billing Department.
