Apple Health (Medicaid): Provider Alert

Permanent Adoption (CR103P)

182-551-1860, Hospice Concurrent Care, (WSR 17-12-082)
Purpose: The agency amended this rule to align the language with the Federal rules in 42 U.S.C. 1396d (o)(1)(C) for hospice concurrent care. The amended language states that a client age twenty and younger may voluntarily elect hospice care without waiving any rights to services that the client is entitled to under Title XIX Medicaid and Title XXI Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that are related to the treatment of the client’s condition for which a diagnosis of terminal illness has been made. The agency also removed the prior authorization requirement for enrollment in a concurrent care plan.
