Typically, Medicare’s initial hospice benefit is broken down into two 90-day benefit periods. If hospice care is still needed after six months, patients can be re-certified for an unlimited number of 60-day benefits. If you are unsatisfied with the care you are receiving, you can change your hospice provider once during each benefit period.What is the difference between Medicare and hospice?
Medications are not covered under Medicare, and medical equipment and supplies may be covered at 80% under Medicare Part B. Hospice is also covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans for eligible patients. Medicare covers medications, medical equipment and supplies related to the terminal diagnosis. Care TeamWill Medicare pay for hospice care?
