Who Pays for Hospice Care?
Hospice patients 65 or over who are enrolled in Medicare will find that their hospice care is fully covered by the Medicare Hospice Benefit. The Florida Medicaid Hospice Benefit and most private insurance plans also cover hospice care. Our knowledgeable staff can help patients and families apply for Medicaid coverage.
As a not-for-profit community hospice organization, we do not turn anyone away. Hospice services are provided regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. The generous contributions we receive from community supporters enable us to care for our neighbors.
