Hospice is specialized care for people facing a terminal or life-limiting illness. It addresses pain management and symptom control as well as spiritual and emotional needs related to end-of-life choices. This combination preserves the dignity of patients and provides helpful education to caregivers.
Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial insurances provide a benefit for eligible hospice patients. Plans generally cover the following:
Medical care directed by a physician
Skilled nursing care
Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
Medication and medical supplies related to the illness
Short-term inpatient care for symptom management
Short-term respite for caregivers
Social services and spiritual counseling
Home Health Services
