5 Little Known Benefits of Hospice

Updated: Jul 20

Were you aware of some of these benefits of Hospice?


  • Medicare created hospice benefit in 1982, yet only 48% of qualified families take advantage of hospice.

  • You choose to "elect" the hospice benefit, and you can stop it at anytime.

  • Patients pay nothing; Medicare pays 100% of care; visits, medications, medical equipment and supplies related to the illness being treated during hospice.

  • Hospice is a six-month benefit, though services can continue if patients remain eligible.

  • Studies show patients enrolled in hospice services live longer with better symptom control and pain management versus non-hospice patients.
