[intro]Capital Caring, the largest and most experienced provider of advanced illness care in the mid-Atlantic region, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in an investigational study called the Medicare Care Choices Model (MCCM). The Care Choices model is a three-year study designed to explore ways to improve care options for hospice-eligible beneficiaries by allowing greater flexibility and choice in deciding between hospice care and curative treatment, when faced with life-limiting illness.[/intro]
