Payment Process

Who is responsible to pay
for Hospice?

Patients and their family usually never have to pay for hospice care, thankfully due to the Medicare Hospice Benefit which provides complete coverage of all services related to the terminal illness, covered 100%. This means there will be no co-pays or any out-of-pocket expenses required for hospice care. In addition to the Medicare Hospice Benefit, most private insurances include a hospice benefit to cover similar costs.

This is an end to end hospice care coverage, which includes everything required for a complete hospice care. All staff visits, evaluations, medical equipment and supplies, medications, emotional therapy, and inpatient care are covered 100%.

For families who do not qualify for federal assistance programs or do not have insurance, Comfort Hospice & Palliative Care has qualified financial staff to evaluate financial assistance options.
