The Medicare hospice benefit.

Abstract

November is national hospice month. Since 1983, Medicare has covered hospice services for beneficiaries with terminal illnesses. However, relatively few people know that this benefit exists. In this brief we discuss how the Medicare hospice benefit works--who is eligible, what it covers (and doesn't cover) and how you can help your clients access this benefit.
