What’s next for hospice?

The news of Washington’s attempt at health-care reform has been taken primarily negatively around here an by hospice in general. Apparently about $7 billion will be cut from hospice-directed spending and there will much more regulation as well.

It’s difficult to say how this will really affect hospice care. There will be lawsuits and hold-ups I’m sure, and I’d be willing to bet that how the law is implemented in the years to come will be quite different from the bill that passed. Still, it does make one wonder about who will survive such a big change.
