2020 Home Health & Hospice Provider Outreach and Education (POE) Advisory Group Membership Drive

CGS invites interested parties to participate in our Home Health and/or Hospice Provider Outreach and Education Advisory Groups (POE AGs). ┬áThe primary function of each Advisory Group is to assist CGS in the creation, implementation, and review of provider education strategies and efforts. The Advisory Group members provide input and feedback on training topics, provider education materials, and dates and locations of provider education workshops and events. The group also identifies salient provider education issues, and recommends effective means of information dissemination to all appropriate providers and their staff, including the use of the Provider Contact Center (PCC) to disseminate information to providers.  Reference: CMS Medicare Contractor Beneficiary and Provider Communications Manual (Pub. 100-09), chapter 6, section 20.6.1External PDF.

Currently, our Advisory Groups encompass a number of state and national organization officials.  We are looking to expand and diversify our groups to include more individual providers and representatives of home health and hospice agencies.  Membership will consist of a two year commitment.  CGS has created the Provider Outreach & Education Advisory Group CovenantPDF that summarizes the purpose and goals of the group.  The covenant also details the responsibilities of CGS as the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and you as an active member. 

Registration for the 2020 J15 Home Health and Hospice POE-AGs is scheduled to begin January 14, 2020, and scheduled to close February 14, 2020.  Please consider this opportunity to share your feedback about educational efforts made available by CGS.  If you are interested in joining either group or have any questions, send them to our education mailbox at
