Who pays for home hospice care?

In most cases, patients who have a terminal illness and qualify for hospice are covered and do not pay for hospice care. 

Medicare / Medicaid

 

Most Medicare and Medicaid plans will cover the entire cost of hospice care.

Veteran’s Benefits

The Veteran’s Health Administration will cover hospice care for those who meet eligibility requirements.

Health Insurance Coverage

Most private insurance policies offer some degree of hospice care coverage. Patients should check with their provider to determine whether hospice care will be covered and under which circumstances it will be allowed. The qualifications and covered benefits vary by insurer.
