Different perspectives add completely different insights and opinions. With Medicare reimbursement for hospice patients getting tighter and tighter hospices are forced to cut spending in all areas of their care. As a hospice, you can only cut spending by so much before it affects the quality of patient care. Because of the low reimbursement rates, hospices are always looking to cut spending on unnecessary things, which poses the question “What is the single biggest waste of money in hospice?” The SONO team took this question to 6 different people from completely different perspectives. The team asked a hospice owner, a pharmacist, a DME management provider, a PBM, and a medical supply company. All of the answers we received are their words. NOT ours. However, the sources of these answers will remain anonymous.
