Official Program Name: Florida Program for All Inclusive Care for Children 1115
State: Florida
Waiver Authority: 1115
Date Originally Approved: N/A
Implementation Date: N/A
Expiration Date: N/A
Summary: On September 5, 2002, CMS received an initial demonstration proposal for the above-named program that was missing budget neutrality data. Following technical assistance by CMS, budget data to complete the package was submitted on July 1, 2003. The project goal was to develop a service model for children with life threatening conditions and their families in which needed care is provided in a cost effective manner and which enhances the quality of life for patients and their families. The demonstration would have eliminated the requirement found in the traditional hospice benefit that an individual must be in the final six months of life, and would have provided a blend of curative and palliative care and social services to the child and family unit. Individuals could have enrolled in the demonstration upon physician referral from the provider network currently serving Florida’s special needs children population (Children’s Medical Services Network, or CMSN). An interdisciplinary team of pediatric physicians, specialists, and counselors would have managed the care delivered to the child and family.
