We know hospice and palliative care programs across the state are being inundated with updates and resources regarding the Coronavirus. The FHPCA staff has collected some national and regional resources we hope will be helpful for our Florida-based clinicians.

National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care
The outbreak of COVID-19 is impacting our work as hospice and palliative care providers.  This National Coalition is committed to supporting people with this disease while continuing the vital services to those with other serious illnesses.  Click here for a list of national resources to provide guidance during this pandemic.

Florida Resources:
CMS Telehealth and Hospice
CMS released a video providing answers to common questions about the Medicare telehealth services benefit.  CMS is expanding this benefit on a temporary basis under the 1135 waiver authority and Coronavirus Preparedeness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act.  Click here to watch the video.
