AN ACT CONCERNING REGULATIONS RELATING TO HOSPICE CARE.
As Amended by House "A" (LCO 3261)
House Calendar No. : 263
OFA Fiscal Note
There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Public Health associated with allowing DPH-licensed hospices1 to operate a hospice residence or facility.
House “A” eliminated an anticipated General Fund revenue gain of approximately $2,000 in FY 13 and $1,000 in FY 14 associated with licensing two facilities in FY 13 and one in FY 14 as “hospice facilities. ” This new category of a health care institution was added in the underlying bill, extending to these entities statutory requirements for health care institutions, including licensure.
