ELECTION OF HOSPICE BENEFITS STATEMENT

I, ________________________________________________________________________ (Beneficiary's Name and Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service Eligibility Identification Number)

elect to receive Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service hospice benefits from:

________________________________________________________________________________

(Name of Hospice Agency and Medicaid Provider Billing Number)

effective this _______ day of _______, 20 _______.

I am aware that I have a life threatening illness. I consent to the management of the symptoms of my disease by the above hospice agency. My family and I will help to develop a plan of care based on our needs. My care will be supervised by my attending physician, ______________________________, and the Hospice Medical Director in conjunction with the hospice interdisciplinary group.

I may receive benefits which include home nursing visits, counseling, medical social work services, medical supplies and equipment. If needed, I may also receive home health aide/homemaker services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology services, other items and services which are included in the plan of care and otherwise covered by Medicaid, inpatient care for acute symptoms and procedures ordered by my physician, and hospice and continuous nursing care in the home in medical crisis.

I may request volunteer services from the hospice.

In accepting these services, I relinquish my rights to regular Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service benefits, except for services of my attending physician, and for treatment for medical care unrelated to my terminal illness, except when the unrelated services are approved by the hospice interdisciplinary group, or provided in the case of accidental injury, or sudden or serious illness requiring treatment on an emergency basis.

I understand that I can revoke and terminate my hospice benefits at any time and resume regular Medicaid or NJ FamilyCare benefits if I am still eligible for Medicaid or NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service.

I understand that the hospice benefits consist of the following benefit periods: two 90-day periods, and an unlimited number of subsequent 60-day benefit periods. I may be responsible for hospice charges if I become ineligible for Medicaid or NJ FamilyCare.

I am aware that if I choose to revoke hospice benefits during a benefit period, I am not entitled to coverage for hospice services for the remaining days of that benefit period. I understand that should I choose to do so, I am still eligible to receive the remaining benefit period(s).

I understand that, should I choose to do so, I may change the designation of the particular hospice once during the election period by filing a statement with the particular hospice from which care has been received and with the newly designated hospice. I understand that changing hospice providers is not a revocation of the remainder of that election period.

I understand that, unless I revoke the hospice benefits, hospice coverage will continue for 180 consecutive days. After the 180 days of hospice benefits, my benefits will automatically expire unless I choose to request an unlimited number of subsequent benefit periods, upon physician recertification of my continued need for hospice services related to my terminal illness.

I understand that if I am a dually eligible Medicare and Medicaid or Medicare/NJ FamilyCare beneficiary, I must elect to use the Medicare and Medicaid or NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service hospice benefits simultaneously.

Check one:

[ ] I am a Medicare beneficiary and have elected to use the Medicare hospice benefits. My Medicare eligibility for hospice benefits begins on: _______________.

(Date)

[ ] I am not a Medicare beneficiary.

[ ] I am currently a nursing facility resident, residing at:

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING THE HOSPICE
ELIGIBILITY FORM (FD-383)
The Hospice Eligibility Form (FD-383) is to be initiated by the hospice
provider. The purpose of this form is to notify the MACC, CBOSS or DYFS
District Offices that hospice services have been selected. It verifies that
the beneficiary is medically eligible for Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare fee-for-
service hospice services and that the process for determining financial
eligibility has been initiated. The form is used by the MACC, CBOSS or DYFS
District Offices to identify a hospice beneficiary with the entry of Special
Program Status Code 15 into the data system. Accurate completion of this form
is necessary in order to receive reimbursement payment for hospice services
provided to Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare fee-for-service beneficiaries for
specific dates of service. This form is not completed for Medicaid managed
care beneficiaries.
Form FD 383 must be completed by the hospice provider when hospice services
are elected, revoked or the Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare beneficiary dies. If there
is a change in hospice providers or a change in the Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare
beneficiary's address, this form is used to reflect those changes.
The first section of form FD-383 must be completed by the hospice provider.
Blocks one through eleven should reflect current demographic information
regarding the hospice beneficiary and also applicable dates of election of
services, physician certification, termination, revocation or death. The
hospice name and provider billing number must be included with a signature,
phone and fax number and a date in order to certify and validate the
information. Absence of a dated signature of the hospice provider invalidates
the information, and the FD-383 form should be returned to the hospice
provider for completion.
The hospice provider must send the original copy of form FD-383 with the
Physician's Certification/Recertification form (FD-385) and the Election of
Hospice Benefits form (FD-378) to the agencies as follows:
-- To the Medical Assistance Customer Center (MACC) for SSI eligibles
-- To the County Boards of Social Services (CBOSS) of the beneficiary's
residence for Medicaid Only and New Jersey Care...Special Programs
applicants
-- To the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) District office
for children in DYFS foster care
The MACC, CBOSS or DYFS District Office will process the data and return a
copy of form FD-383 to the hospice provider with a copy of the computer
screen showing the effective date and termination date of Special Program
Status Code 15.
