Hospice Benefit in Value Based Insurance Design Model Webinar on Jan 30

The Medicare Advantage Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model team will host a webinar on Thursday, January 30, 2020, on the hospice benefit component recently added to the VBID Model.

During the webinar, CMS will share next steps and engagement opportunities as well as conduct a live question and answer session.
