How Do I Pay for Hospice Care?
Medicare and Medicaid have hospice benefits that will cover all patient charges associated with the terminal condition. Most insurance companies, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, MedCost, etc., have a hospice benefit for covered participants. Coverage and details vary between policies. In addition, Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care will never turn away a patient due to their lack of insurance or ability to pay. Patient co-pays are determined based upon demonstrated need. Community contributions help fund care for those who are unable to pay. Financial burdens are lessened when patients choose hospice for end-of-life care in sharp contrast to the huge financial expenses when hospice is not used.
