Who pays for Hospice?
Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medi-Cal, most private insurance plans, HMO’s and other managed care organizations. 80% of people who receive hospice care are over the age of 65 and are entitled to services offered by the Medicare Hospice Benefit. This benefit covers virtually all aspects of hospice care. Because Hospice of the Valleys is a nonprofit organization, no one is denied care due to financial need.
