Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid in most states, and by most insurance plans and HMOs. Hospice care is provided in the home, nursing home assisted living facilities and long term care centers.
Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with any illness. Hospice professionals and trained volunteers will ask you what’s important and listen to what you say. They make your wishes a priority.
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to find out more about hospice and palliative care is right now. You can bet your life on it.
