FHPCA Board Members Testify in Support of Hospice CON

Certificate of Need (CON) is important to hospices in Florida. It ensures patients in communities throughout the state receive the quality care and support they need. Florida currently serves the second most patients nationally and leads the country in pediatric hospice services – caring for 500% more children than the national average.

While some opponents of CON point to its repeal as a way to save Floridians money the truth is that hospices are reimbursed at a fix rate.

 

FHPCA Board Members testified against HB7 or the “CON Repeal Bill” and informed the panel about the importance of hospice CON.
