Hospice Payments & Insurance Options
Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance policies. Insurance covers all hospice services and supplies related to the patient's illness. Hospice of St. Mary's provides care regardless of a patient's ability to pay. The Hospice Board of Directors ensures ongoing support through fundraising, which helps offset the cost of care for those who are not insured. The hospice staff will assist families in finding out whether the patient is eligible for any coverage that he or she may not be aware of.
