Home Health, Hospice & Durable Medical Equipment Open Door Forum

The next Home Health, Hospice, and DME Open Door Forum is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17, 2008. If you wish to participate, please see the Related Links Inside CMS to sign up on the Mailing List. A Mailing List notice with the participation information will be sent 2 weeks prior to the scheduled date.

The Home Health, Hospice, and Durable Medical Equipment Open Door Forum (ODF) addresses the concerns of three unique health care areas within the Medicare & Medicaid programs. Issues related to Home Health PPS, the newly proposed competitive bidding for DME, and the Medicare Hospice benefit are all topics the forum has covered. Many of the issues covered bridge concerns within all three settings, and the combination of the topics under one forum has been useful to many participants. We continue to hold Special ODFs when individual policy issues require special attention. Timely announcements and clarifications regarding important rulemaking, agency program initiatives, and other related areas are also included in the forums.
