When Is Hospice Care Needed?
Hospice care is required when the focus of living with an illness becomes comfort rather than cure. This often occurs when a patient has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and can no longer benefit from medical treatments. Life expectancy for these patients is typically less than one year.
Where Is Hospice Care Provided?
Our services are provided directly to the patient, at the patient’s home – whether that is in their residence, an assisted living facility, a nursing home, or a board and care.
Who Pays for Hospice Services?
Hospice services are covered by:
- Participating private insurance plans
Medicare and Medi-Cal provide coverage for medications, equipment, and hospice services associated with comfort, as they relate to the patient’s hospice diagnosis. However, costs that are not related to the hospice diagnosis may not be covered. These may include medications, equipment, services and/or room and board.
