NHPCO Files Suit Against Medicare

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization is suing Medicare to stop the rate increase.

Guess that will silence all the people who have complained over the years that NHPCO wasn’t aggressive enough. Personally, I’m not sure that they haven’t been too aggressive in this instance, but I don’t really know enough about the inner working of the process or the lawsuit to know for sure. I hope it turns out well, and assume NHPCO thinks they have a good shot at winning or they wouldn’t have picked this fight.
