At a time when the emotional challenges of a terminal diagnosis can be overwhelming, the last thing you need to worry about are financial issues. Reliable Hospice understands this and is here to answer any questions you have about your individual circumstance.
The hospice benefit for patients is one of the most generous healthcare programs ever designed under the Medicare system. In most cases, medical supplies, medical equipment and medications that are deemed necessary by the physician for the treatment of the terminal condition are provided at No Cost to the patient or their family.
In addition to Medicare, Medi-Cal and most private insurance plans have some degree of hospice benefit coverage. Since most private insurance varies, it’s always best to contact your carrier to verify your level of coverage for these services.
Under certain circumstances, inpatient, continuous care (24/7) and respite care for caregivers are also available. Since each individual case is unique, we encourage you to contact a representative from Reliable Hospice who will be happy to explain what is included in the individual plan of care for you or your loved one.
