Specialized outpatient palliative care; application for funding in the start-up phase.

The Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides grants (subsidies), without legal obligation and within the limits of available funds, toward eligible expenses in the start-up phase of Specialized Ambulatory Palliative Care (SAPV) teams.

Description

Purpose

The Free State of Bavaria has a considerable state interest in establishing nationwide provision of Specialized Ambulatory Palliative Care (SAPV) services for the population in Bavaria, because more people are to be enabled to live in their home environment until the end. The conclusion of contracts for SAPV is progressing only hesitantly. One of the reasons for this is that SAPV teams can only carry out the necessary start-up work with a delay due to a lack of funds. Experience with start-up funding to date suggests that the funding enables SAPV teams to quickly establish themselves in their service area. The funding will therefore be continued.

Subject

The Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care grants subsidies (grants), without legal obligation and within the limits of the available funds, for the eligible expenses in the start-up phase of the SAPV teams The start-up phase comprises the foundation phase (phase between the prospect of a care contract to the conclusion of the contract) and the first months after the conclusion of the contract. The start-up phase of an SAPV team is not covered by the scope of services of the care contract. The start-up phase begins at the earliest on the date of written notification of the prospect of a care contract by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Krankenkassenverbände in Bayern (ARGE). The start-up phase ends no later than six months after conclusion of the contract. During the start-up phase, funding is provided for a maximum period of six months.

Recipients of funding

Recipients of funding are SAPV teams that have been promised a care contract by the ARGE or with which the ARGE has concluded a care contract. SAPV teams are teams that provide outpatient specialized palliative medical and palliative care services, including their coordination. SAPV teams must meet the requirements of § 37b SGB V, the guideline of the Joint Federal Committee on the prescription of specialized outpatient palliative care (announcement of the Joint Federal Committee of December 20, 2007), the joint recommendations of the Central Association of Health Insurance Funds in accordance with § 132d (2) SGB V of June 23, 2008, and the model contract of the ARGE, as amended from time to time. SAPV teams dedicated exclusively to the SAPV of children and adolescents may also receive grants under this funding information.

Eligible costs

Eligible costs are expenses that are necessarily incurred in the start-up phase of an SAPV team and are not reimbursed by the care contract with ARGE. These are in particular:

  • Personnel expenses
  • Material expenses (e.g. office equipment, office supplies, telephone costs)
  • Rent for premises of the SAPV team during the start-up phase
  • Public relations expenses (e.g. flyers, website, travel expenses).

Type and amount

The Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care grants a subsidy for the establishment of SAPV teams during the start-up phase in the maximum amount of 15,000.00 euros per team. The grant is awarded by way of project funding as shortfall financing. There is no legal entitlement to the funding. The grant recipient must bear at least 10% of the eligible expenses itself.

Prerequisites

The prerequisite for the grant is the written prospect of a care contract by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Krankenkassenverbände in Bayern (ARGE) or the conclusion of a care contract. A prospect or conclusion of a contract takes place after the ARGE has examined the requirements for the SAPV team and the economic viability of the future operation of the SAPV team.

Measures that have already been started cannot be funded. SAPV teams must therefore declare that the measure has not yet been started and will not be started before the grant decision is issued.

Please refer to the possibility of applying for approval of the early start of the measure.

A prerequisite for the grant from the Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care (StMGP) is that the start-up phase of the SAPV team cannot be financed in any other way. This means that the grant is subsidiary to all other benefits (cf. Art. 23 Bavarian Budget Code - BayHO).

Procedure

Application

Applications should be sent to the Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care (Department 46).

Approval

The Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care issues a grant notification after positive review of the application.

Payment

The grant is paid upon written application. The "Application for Payment" form must be used for the application for payment. The grant may only be requested to the extent that it is needed within two months for payments due within the scope of the purpose of the grant and no earlier.

In addition, the grant may not be requested until the grantee's designated own and other funds have been expended.

As a rule, the Bavarian State Ministry for Health and Care retains a final installment from the grant, which is not paid out until the proof of use has been reviewed.
