When is it time for Hospice?

When a patient has a terminal illness and is certified by a physician as having a life expectancy of six months or less, they are eligible for hospice care. The patient must also want to choose comfort measures over aggressive treatment. Hospice is proven to be the most effective the earlier a patient starts receiving care and the number one complaint from families is they wish they had known about hospice sooner.

Paying for Hospice

If a patient is medically eligible for hospice care, hospice services are 100% covered by Medicare and Medicaid. Medications, equipment and supplies that are related to the hospice diagnosis and prognosis are covered. Private insurance plans may also provide hospice coverage. We will contact your insurance to verify hospice coverage.
