What is the hospice benefit?
Hospice is a compassionate, specialized healthcare service designed to provide comfort and support to patients with a life-limiting illness. Hospice provides support to the patient and family by caring for physical, psychological and spiritual needs. While on hospice a patient may also qualify for traditional medical services. If a hospice patient’s condition improves and they no longer qualify for current hospice services, their complete Medicare hospice benefit is still available when they need it again.
