The application deadline for a size exemption from the Hospice CAHPS Survey is August 10, 2016. For the CY 2016 data collection period, Medicare-certified hospices that served fewer than 50 survey-eligible clients in CY 2015 can apply for exemption from the CAHPS Hospice Survey. Exemptions on the basis of size are active for one year only; you must resubmit an application even if you applied last year.
