CMS Posts Slides from Recent VBID Model Webinar
On January 30, the Medicare Advantage Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model team hosted a webinar to provide information and answer questions about the hospice benefit component that will be added to the VBID Model in 2021. Slides from the webinar have been posted online.
Topics addressed on the webinar included an overview of the VBID Model, a deep dive into the payment policies being tested as part of the hospice benefit component of the Model for CY 2021, and the application process. During the webinar, CMS shared the next steps and held a question and answer session.
Organizations interested in participating in the VBID Model must apply online by March 16, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. EST. The application portal will be live in February 2020 and application questions can be found in Appendix B of the CY 2021 VBID Hospice Benefit Component Request for Applications (PDF).
