How Is Hospice Care Paid For?

Hospice care is a covered benefit paid for by Medicare. The majority of private insurers pay for hospice as well. Our staff can provide financial guidance to navigate the process of beginning hospice care whether you have Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. If you are relying on Medicare to cover hospice, then there are certain requirements that you must meet first before beginning hospice care. At Legacy Hospice, we will help you obtain this service if you are medically appropriate.
