CMS Releases Public Use File for Hospices


CMS has prepared a public data set, the Hospice Utilization and Payment Public Use File (PUF), with information on services provided to Medicare beneficiaries by hospice providers.

The Hospice PUF contains information on utilization, payment (Medicare payment and standard payment), submitted charges, primary diagnoses, sites of service, and hospice beneficiary demographics organized by CMS Certification Number and state.

The Hospice PUF contains two tables: 1) aggregated information by provider, 2) aggregated information by state.

Access the PUF here.
