Who Pays for Hospice?
COVERAGE IS PROVIDED BY:
Medicare, Medicaid, most Private Insurances and Private Payers.
AETNA Better Health
Blue Cross Blue Shield
There is no need to defer hospice care due to financial concerns. The Medicare Hospice Benefit covers 100 percent of the cost of care related to the terminal illness. In most states, Medicaid also provides hospice coverage, as do most private insurance plans. Coverage includes everything involved in hospice care, from nurse and physician visits to therapy, medication and more.
All hospice agencies are reimbursed the same way. This means they do not compete on cost. So, what separates one Hospice Agency from another? It is the quality of service & the dedication of the team to serve the patient & their loved ones with respect, dignity & confidentiality committed to making a difference in the lives of every patient we serve.
You will find that the difference in the quality of care is what the Solace Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. team embodies. Please tell us how we can help you or your family member. Call 847-250-5036 today to speak to our kind staff.
Hospice & Palliative Care can also be covered under VA benefits for qualified veterans. It is generally arranged and coordinated with a VA social worker at the facility in which you receive your health care.
