When is it time for hospice? Who is eligible?
When a doctor has determined the patient has a life expectancy of six months or less, and all curative treatments are discontinued, it is time to call in hospice. Many times families wait too long to seek comfort (palliative) care and support for end of life needs. Talk with your doctor and ask these questions: Is it Time for Hospice?
Another concern for families is covering the costs of hospice care. Medicare, Medicaid, VA benefits, and most private health insurance plans provide hospice benefits. Medicare beneficiaries receive hospice at little to no cost. Read more here: Eligibility and Paying For Hospice.
