This bill prohibits a hospice from charging a fee to a private pay patient or the financially responsible third party to reserve or hold a bed on behalf of the patient for a day in which the patient is not physically residing in the facility and receiving services. The bill provides exceptions allowing for a daily fee to reserve a bed for therapeutic leave or during a period of hospitalization. This would prevent a hospice from charging a patient or family member for time periods in which the hospice is not providing services and the hospice is free to place another patient in the bed.
