How Will I Pay
Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurance plans. This benefit covers all aspects of hospice care related to the diagnosis, including medications, nursing, and equipment. Our Regional Hospice staff will assist you and your loved ones with obtaining the maximum benefits from your insurance company
Medicare allows hospice agencies to charge up to a $5 co-pay per medication, paid for by the hospice agency. Regional Hospice will NOT charge you a co-pay for any of the medications that we pay for.
Like drug co-pays, Regional Hospice will NOT charge you the standard 5% co-pay for respite care.
