Hospice Services provided at Accord Palliative and Hospice Care, Inc. will be covered 100% by Medicare and Medicaid. In some cases, there will be private insurance companies who cover a portion if not all the costs for services.

The Medicare Hospice Benefit provides medical coverage for the care of patients without deductibles or co-payments. The benefit has four levels of care that are designed to allow hospice to serve as the case manager for patients in any setting.

  • Routine Home Care is the basic level of care needed to maintain the patient in their residence or facility.
  • Continuous Care allows hospice to place nursing services at your bedside, around the clock for short periods of time, during periods of crisis.
  • General Inpatient Care is a level of care that enables hospice to transfer the patient to a contracted facility (hospital or skilled nursing unit) for inpatient hospice services during periods of crisis.
  • Respite Care enables hospice to give family caregivers a short (5-day) respite by transferring the patient to a contracted facility.
