Joint Budget Committee. The bill authorizes a state payment to
qualified hospice providers, as defined in the bill, that provide hospice
services in a licensed hospice facility to persons enrolled in the medical

assistance program who are eligible for care in a nursing facility but who
are unable to secure a bed in a nursing facility due to the presence of
COVID-19 in the state or for other reasons described in the bill. The
eligible patient, as defined in the bill, must have a hospice diagnosis. The
state payment to a qualified hospice provider is limited to not more than
28 days for each eligible patient.
The qualified hospice provider must provide residential services
to an eligible patient during the fourth quarter of the 2020-21 fiscal year
or during the 2021-22 fiscal year.
The state payment is an amount equal to one-half of the statewide
average per diem rate for nursing facilities. State payments are limited to
appropriations for this purpose.
The department of health care policy and financing shall
administer the state payment and shall seek input from qualified hospice
providers concerning the administration of the payment and the allocation
of available appropriations.
