FAQ

Can “Hospice Beneficiaries” be summed across providers or states for a total count of distinct hospice beneficiaries in the Hospice PUF?

No, hospice beneficiaries cannot be summed across providers or states for a total count of distinct hospice beneficiaries. Hospice beneficiaries will only be counted once per provider but a beneficiary may receive services from more than one hospice provider and in more than one state during a year.
