Hospice care is a type of care that focuses on comfort and quality of life rather than cure. Hospice care providers work with patients and their families to develop a care plan that meets each individual’s unique needs.
Hospice care is typically provided wherever you call home. Medicare Part A covers up to 100% of the cost of hospice services that are related to a hospice-eligible patient’s advanced illness. Patients with Medicare Advantage plans are covered by original Medicare. Patients with a private or employer-provided health plan should check with their insurance provider for details about hospice eligibility, coverage, and out-of-pocket expenses.
If you or a loved one is living with a serious illness, finding the right kind of care and support can be difficult. Too often, your quality of life deteriorates as treatments become more aggressive and side affects escalate.
Despite your best efforts, you may no longer be getting the help you need. What you need is a calm, thoughtful approach to your care. What you need is a plan to address your concerns before they become crises that require another trip to the hospital or emergency department. This is when hospice care can do the most good.
