The Medicare Hospice benefit covers all services, medications, supplies and equipment related to the terminal illness. Other insurances may offer some coverage for Hospice, but may not cover the entire cost. If a patient has no insurance or partial coverage, we will work with each patient on an individual basis. When it comes to managing the health needs of a loved one, there really is no place like home.
