4 October 17, Hospice State Regulations Revised State regulations revised and effective August 31, 2016 Revised: 10 NYCRR Parts 700.2, 717, 793, 794 Makes the State operational rules for hospices consistent with federal regulations (CoPs) Dear Administrator Letter DHCBS provides summary of changes
5 October 17, Public Health Law Changes Public Health Law (PHL) 4002 (5): Terminally ill means an individual has a medical prognosis that the individual s life expectancy is approximately one year or less if the illness runs its normal course. PHL expanded the definition of terminal illness from six months to 12 months life expectancy. This change from 6 months to 12 months incorporates the Medicaid Redesign Initiative (MRT #209) to expand the Medicaid hospice benefit. This will allow individuals to access hospice care earlier in their terminal illness to manage symptoms on an ongoing basis and reduce the need for more costly emergency room visits and hospital stays.
6 October 17, Summary of Regulatory Changes Expands the definition of terminal illness from 6 months to 12 months life expectancy and addresses the difference in terminal illness for different payer sources Increases hospice residence capacity from 8 to 16 beds Adds definition of palliative care consistent with PHL 4012b: palliative care which means the active interdisciplinary care of patients with advanced, life limiting illness, focusing on relief of distressing physical and psychosocial symptoms and meeting the spiritual needs. Its goal is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and families.
7 October 17, Section Definition Changes 700.2(c)(55) defines a hospice patient as a person who is certified as being terminally ill, with a life expectancy of 12 months or less, who, alone or in conjunction with designated family member(s), has voluntarily requested admission into hospice and has been accepted into hospice for which the Department has issued a certificate of approval; provided, however, that nothing herein shall be construed to require provision of services to a patient that are not covered by the patient s payment source.
8 October 17, Section Definitions Changes 700.2(c)(58) clarifies that palliative and supportive care is provided to a hospice patient for the reduction and abatement of pain and other symptoms and stresses associated with terminal illness and dying (c)(60) is added to include the definition of palliative care, as defined in PHL, provided to a person with advanced, life limiting illness (a)(27) increases the maximum bed capacity of a hospice residence from 8 to 16 beds.
9 October 17, Part 717 Summary of Changes is amended to increase the maximum bed capacity for a free standing hospice residence from 8 to 16 beds is amended to reduce maximum room capacity from 4 to 2 patients as required by federal rules for inpatient facilities and units is amended to allow a hospice to operate a maximum of 25% of total residence beds as dually certified beds at any given time.
