Who Pays for Hospice Care?
Who pays for Hospice Care?
More often than not, patients and their families deny themselves the benefits of hospice care due to financial concerns. Many people are unaware, that most hospice patients are eligible for Medicare Hospice Benefits. In most cases, the patient has very little or no bill to foot as Medicare (Part A) covers 100% of the service, including nursing, medical supplies, equipment, patient care, etc.
Patients may also qualify for hospice care under Medicare and Medi-Cal besides private health insurance plans that cover hospice care. However, some private health insurance organizations may not cover certain expenses when the patient receives treatment in a nursing facility or a retirement home. This may include rent, nursing, or meals.
