Updated IDEA Part C Hospice Services Guidance


The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) is updating guidance for providers and service coordinators regarding hospice services rendered to children enrolled in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part C program, commonly known as BabyNet in South Carolina. Effective Dec. 1, 2021, participation in BabyNet does not exclude enrolled children from entering hospice care. Children receiving hospice services through Medicaid are eligible for medically necessary services in accordance with the Hospice Provider Manual. Children receiving hospice services may concurrently receive early intervention services provided through the BabyNet program.

Providers with questions regarding this alert should contact the BabyNet State Office at BabyNet@scdhhs.gov.
