High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care, a not for profit healthcare agency, emphasizes quality of life and living life to its fullest. Hospice is covered by the Medicare Hospice Benefit, Medicaid and most private carriers but these reimbursements covers only 85% of actual costs of providing hospice’s specialized care. Hospice also never denies service due to inability to pay. High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care relies on the financial support of the communities they serve through fundraising efforts to make up the difference.
