2016 is a leap year, and to help hospices stay on top of face-to-face encounters CGS has developed a Face-to-Face encounter calendar.
The hospice face-to-face (FTF) encounter must occur within 30 calendar days prior to the start of the 3rd benefit period and each subsequent recertification. This tool will assist in assuring the FTF encounter occurs timely. In addition, the following resources are available on the CGS website.
