A special way of caring for the terminally ill patient
Who is eligible?
Medicare coverage for hospice care is available only only if:
-The patient is eligible for Medicare part A;
-The patience's doctor and the hospice medical director certify that the patient is terminally ill with a life expectancy of six months or less;
-The patient signs a statement choosing hospice care instead of standard Medicare benefits for the terminal illness; and
-The patient receives care from a Medicare - approved hospice program.
Hospice provides many benefits that aren't available in a traditional health-care setting.
Hospice encourages family involvement in a patient's care, and allows for greater control for patient.
