Hospice LDS

The Hospice file contains final action claims submitted by Hospice providers. Once a beneficiary elects Hospice, all Hospice related claims will be found in this file, regardless if the beneficiary is in Medicare fee-for-service or in a Medicare managed care plan.

This file includes:

  • the level of hospice care received (e.g., routine home care, inpatient respite care),
  • terminal diagnosis (ICD-9 diagnosis),
  • the dates of service,
  • reimbursement amounts,
  • Hospice provider number, and
  • beneficiary demographic information.
