t be modernized. As a non-profit that relies on charitable donations to cover the cost of providing care, we have a significant investment in the image of the hospice industry and are eager for those abusing the Medicare hospice benefit to be weeded out. It is essential that all hospice providers be accountable to the public and Medicare for their business practices, and to use their resources wisely. We are pleased to be participating in the reform process."
