Comprehensive hospice benefits are available through Medicare and Medicaid. Under
the Medicare Hospice Benefit and the Medicaid Hospice Benefit, these programs pay
a daily rate for services. (While receiving hospice care, if a patient requires treatment
for a condition unrelated to the terminal illness, Medicare continues to help pay
for all necessary covered expenses under the standard Medicare benefit program).
Private insurance may also pay for all or part of hospice care costs. Patients should
refer to their individual plan for coverage eligibility. If a patient does not have
hospice benefits, or if these benefits are exhausted, please call (440) 888-7722
for further information.
