Hospice Hub will begin to offer outsourcing services for stakeholders affected by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services' new requirements regarding the management of Part D Prior authorizations
PITTSBURGH, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. hospice industry is shaken by complex policy reforms initiated by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Effective May 1, 2014, the industry is looking for answers to a newly required process mandating communication of drug coverage between hospice organizations and Medicare Part D plans. In an effort to support this new requirement, Hospice Hub, a Pennsylvania-based technology firm, recently announced an affordable "Part D Prior Authorization Processing" service. The patent-pending solution allows hospices to outsource this time consuming challenge.
Communication between hospices and Medicare Part D is not a simple task. Stakeholders in the mix of this rapidly changing landscape are not only hospice organizations, but also Medicare Part D plan sponsors, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and dispensing pharmacies that must work together to satisfy the new requirements.
Hospice Hub's offerings are not limited to answering the latest demands of these newest regulations. The organization maintains strategic partnerships with key industry stakeholders committed to technology innovation to eliminate non-value added tasks for the industry. Current initiatives are in place with Part D plans, PBMs, pharmacies, and other hospice vendors to answer the need for a standardized, industry-wide, electronic system/health record integration platform. This platform will enable hospices and their vendors to maintain one access point to share information.
