Resources you can count on.  

December 2 and December 31, 2023 are IMPORTANT DATES!
 

Is your hospice prepared for the extra day (February 29, 2024) when calculating hospice benefit periods?

 

On the year before a leap year occurs, December 2 becomes significant for 90-day benefit periods because 90 days from December 2 is February 29. January 1 becomes significant for 60-day benefit periods because 60 days from January 1 is February 29. The laminated Benefit Period Calculator does not include February 29. 

For 90-day benefit periods, use the laminated Calculator through December 1, 2023. Temporarily STOP USING the laminated Calculator and instead on December 2, 2023, use the Leap Year Supplement through February 29, 2024. Resume use of the laminated Calculator on March 1, 2024.

 

For 60-day benefit periods, use the laminated Calculator through December 31, 2023. Temporarily STOP USING the laminated Calculator and instead on January 1, 2024, use the Leap Year Supplement through February 29, 2024. Resume use of the laminated Calculator on March 1, 2024.
