CMS has updated pages of the Hospice Item Set Manual V2.00 as a result of the federal Medicare agency’s plan to provide new Medicare cards beginning in April 2018.
The new cards will replace the Social Security-based Health Insurance Claims Numbers (HICNs).
CMS announced Sept. 28 that it has updated pages 2A-8 and 2A-9 of Hospice Item Set Manual V2.00. The update also provides coding guidance for the affected item (A0600B Medicare number).
