What is Hospice?

Hospice is a concept of care (service), not a place. Hospice is Medical care that comforts and supports patients and their families when an advanced illness cant be cured. Hospice can be provided anywhere a person calls home-often times a private home, group home, nursing facility, or other adult care facility.

  • Make the most of your time remaining

    We treat the symptoms of advanced illness for people during their last months, weeks, and days of life. The goal of hospice is to make the most of the time that remains.

  • The Hospice Team

    Hospice is provided by a team of professionals specially trained in end-of-life care. They manage a patients pain and discomfort and support the whole family around the emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of death and dying.

  • Paying for Hospice Care

    Most hospice patients don't pay out of pocket for services related to the reason they are on hospice. Medicare Part A covers up to 100% of the cost of hospice care related to a hospice-eligible patients diagnosis (cause of illness), with no deductible or copayment.

What is Palliative Care?

To palliate is to make a disease or its symptoms less severe or unpleasant without removing the cause. Generally, palliative care is provided within the context of serious illness.

  • Similar to Hospice Care

    Palliative care is a healthcare specialty that focuses on managing the pain, symptoms and stress of a serious illness for patients of any age and at any stage of a disease.

  • Coverage for Palliative Care varies by Insurance Plan

    Medicare Part B and Medicaid cover some types of palliative care, but you might have co-pays for some treatments and medications that are not covered. The same holds true for private plans, which typically cover palliative care, but each members plan may be different.
