The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services yesterday said it will extend the Medicare Care Choices Model by one year, through Dec. 31, 2021; already participating hospices can enroll eligible beneficiaries through June 30, 2021.

CMS said the extension will allow more Medicare beneficiaries to receive supportive care services from certain hospice providers, but does not affect other operations or policies.
