Hospice is a Medicare benefit you have earned

Did you know that hospice is fully covered by Medicare? That’s right, you can rest assured that nursing services, medications, supplies and equipment are covered when there is a diagnosis requiring hospice care.

Palliative Care

Palliative care helps people with serious illness feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It improves quality of life at any stage of illness. Patients can continue curative treatments, and may move in and out of care as the need arises.

  • Managing pain and complex symptoms
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing nausea, loss of appetite and other symptoms
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Spiritual care and medical social services

Care can begin as soon as someone is diagnosed with an illness. It does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery or a cure.
