Deletes specific requirements with which full hospices must comply, and instead provides that hospices must comply with the requirements of the Act, including the standards adopted by the Department of Public Health. Deletes certain items that must be included in the Department's standards. Provides that the separate standards currently applicable to volunteer hospices are inoperative after June 30, 2006 and that the new standards to be adopted for all hospice programs do not apply to volunteer hospices until July 1, 2006. Provides that the hospice program must meet the minimum standards for certification under Medicare. Effective July 1, 2005.
