ANNUAL PALLIATIVE CARE PILOT PROGRAM REPORT
The Palliative Care Pilot Program (PCPP) was created through Senate Bill No. 294 (Chapter 515, Statutes 2017) to expand palliative care services. Hospice care is limited to terminally ill patients who have agreed to forgo curative treatment. The PCPP permits hospices to provide palliative care services to patients with a serious illness. "Serious illness" is defined in HSC 1747.3(k) as a condition that may result in death, regardless of the estimated length of the patient's remaining period of life.
