Hospice. Requires the office of Medicaid policy and planning (OMPP) to apply for a federal waiver to reimburse hospices for room and board services at a rate of 95% of the average case mix per diem reimbursement rate for Medicaid payments in effect for health facilities licensed under IC 16-28 as of July 1 of each year for patients who: (1) reside in a hospice facility; (2) receive a routine home care level of care; and (3) are eligible for Medicaid. Requires OMPP to report the decision of the federal government regarding the waiver to the governor and the general assembly. Provides that OMPP may not implement the waiver unless the general assembly approves the implementation and appropriates funds. Requires the state department of health to conduct annual surveys of hospices until July 1, 2003, and to adopt guidelines to survey hospices every one to three years after July 1, 2003. Specifies criteria that the state department of health must consider in establishing guidelines regarding the survey of hospice programs.
