Is Hospice Care Free?

Hospice care, including medical equipment and all illness-related medications, is provided at absolutely no cost to any patient who qualifies for hospice care under Medicare, Medicaid, and some private health insurance programs and other managed-care organizations. Therefore, Hospice Care is free.

Medicare recipients should be comforted to know that no out-of-pocket expenses are ever billed to the patient or caregiver for hospice services.

Promise Hospice is non-denominational and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, gender, age, marital or Veteran status.
