In most cases, Life Choice Hospice accepts Medicare and Medicaid benefits as payment in full for our hospice services. Additionally, many private insurance companies cover hospice care. See your policy for more information. For your convenience, we have provided information regarding the Medicare and Medicaid benefits below.
Medicare hospice benefits are covered under Medicare Part A (hospital insurance). There are several prerequisites to receive hospice benefits:
Medicare coverage provides comprehensive medical care related to the terminal illness and includes medications, medical supplies and any medical equipment that are related to the terminal illness and included in the Hospice Plan of Care.
As a patient at Life Choice, you always have the option to discontinue hospice care and seek other treatment. It is important to know that treatment and services to cure your life-limiting illness are not covered under the Hospice Medicare Benefit. If you are considering treatment options to cure your illness, please consult with your physician.
For more information about the Medicare Hospice Benefit, please read the Medicare Hospice Guide, a government publication provided by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Medicaid covers hospice care in 45 states and the District of Columbia, including Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Medicaid is state funded insurance offered to low income families. Coverage varies from state to state. Please contact your local Department of Health office for more information about the Medicaid Benefit.
