The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have issued a letter to state health officials and Medicaid Directors offering guidance on a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) dealing with “Concurrent Care for Children.”
Specifically, the provision removes the prohibition of receiving curative treatment upon the election of the hospice benefit by or on behalf of a Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) eligible child.
For more information, see the CMS memo here.
