For most hospice patients, the cost of hospice care is fully covered by the Medicare Hospice Benefit. The Medicare hospice benefit was established in 1982 to provide those patients with terminal illnesses with care focused on managing symptoms and pain from their disease. The hospice benefit was established to ease the high financial burden which can occur during the end of life process.
Oftentimes Medicare covers 100% of the costs associated with hospice care. The Medicare Hospice Benefit provides a daily benefit allowance to the hospice organization and, in turn, they provide for the necessary treatment, care, support, therapies and counseling as part of an individual plan of care. You will be fully informed of your coverage status prior to admission to our hospice care program.
