Medical expenses should not and will not prevent you from receiving comfort care at the end of life. Hospice care is typically covered in full by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance providers. Family members and loved ones typically provide assistance with the care in order to reduce the overall cost of caregiving, however, hospice services are typically available at no cost. We encourage you to reach out as early as possible so that patients and their loved ones may receive the full benefits available through the comprehensive services we provide.
If you have questions about hospice care, or your individual situation, please contact us.
