Who Pays for Hospice

Your hospice benefit covers care for your terminal illness and related conditions. All or part of hospice services is paid for by: Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Veterans Affairs, private insurance plans, HMO’s, or other managed care organizations. There’s no deductible to you. The Hospice Benefit covers the costs for all prescription drugs, supplies, and durable medical equipment associated with the hospice terminal diagnosis throughout the entire time one is eligible for hospice.

Hospice services also include on-going grief and bereavement support for loved ones and friends. Learn more about our Grief Support services
