Bill Title: Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes to the Pediatric Palliative Care Act. Makes changes to the definition of "serious illness". Restores language requiring the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to apply for a waiver to implement the pediatric palliative care program. Defines a qualifying child to be a person under the age of 21 who is enrolled in the medical assistance program and is diagnosed by the child's primary physician or specialist as suffering from a serious illness (rather than a person under 19 years of age who is enrolled in the medical assistance program and suffers from a serious illness). Provides that those serious illnesses that render a child eligible for pediatric palliative care services include any other serious illness that the Department, in consultation with interested stakeholders, determines to be appropriate. Restores language making certain reimbursable services offered under the pediatric palliative care program subject to federal approval for matching funds. Changes "case manager" to "program manager". Changes "qualifying participants" to "qualifying children".
