S.F. No. 687 makes a number of amendments to various laws governing or relating to hospice care.
Section 1 (144A.751, subdivision 1) modifies the hospice care bill of rights as follows:
Section 2 (144A.755) requires the Commissioner of Health to mandate that hospice providers complete and submit a national data set survey to Hospice Minnesota as a condition of licensure.
Section 3 (383B.225, subdivision 5) modifies the statute governing mandatory death reports to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner. It requires the death of a person receiving hospice care to be reported if the person was not seen by a doctor within 180 days of death, rather than the 90 days currently specified.
Section 4 makes section 2 effective January 1, 2006.
