Peer Group Bar Charts
Charts displaying, for each of the areas identified as potentially at risk for improper Medicare payments, the target area percents that are at the 80th, 50th and 20th percentiles for hospices in three categories: total number of episodes, location and ownership type. The statistics were calculated for hospice episodes ending in fiscal year 2020 (October 1, 2019 – September 30, 2020). For details on how these charts were developed please see the Hospice Peer Group Methodology document (PDF, updated 5/2/19). For a listing of all hospices and their peer group classification please see the hospices by peer group file (XLSX, updated 03-31-2021). Note: use Control+F or the “Find” button to search the file for a CMS Certification Number (provider number) or provider name.
