Hospice care is a fully-funded benefit for all Medicare Part A recipients and for all Medicaid recipients. This means if a patient has Medicare PART A or Medicaid, the hospice services related to the primary diagnosis for hospice will be paid.
Most private insurance also provides a hospice benefit. The terms of the hospice benefit will vary at times from insurance provider to provider. Hospice of Guernsey, Inc. will be able to assist anyone needing help to decipher what coverage their insurance provides.
For anyone who does not have an insurance provider for medical coverage, hospice care can be paid privately. Hospice of Guernsey, Inc. will work with the individual and their family to ensure needed services will be provided.
