What Does Hospice Cost?
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurance plans. While receiving hospice, your Medicare, Medicaid or private health insurance policy continues to cover certain health services, treatments and medicines that are medically necessary but are not related to your terminal illness.
If you do not have health insurance and do not qualify for Medicare, financial assistance may be available. As a nonprofit organization, Unity offers CommUnity Care, a financial assistance program ensuring everyone, regardless of financial means, has access to quality end-of-life care. A Unity Billing Coordinator will work with you to determine if you qualify for CommUnity Care.
Prior to enrolling in Unity’s hospice program, we make every attempt to verify your insurance coverage to provide you with the information you need to make the best decision for you. A thorough review of Hospice benefits will be shared during your admission visit.
