(c) To change the designation of hospice programs, the individual or representative must file, with both the hospice from which care has been received and with the newly designated hospice, a statement that includes the following information: (1) the name of the hospice from which the individual has received care and the name of the hospice from which the individual plans to receive care; and (2) the date the change is to be effective. (d) The provider must submit the Medicaid Hospice Recipient Election/Cancellation/Discharge Notice to Provider Claims Services.
