Hospice Home Payment Options

The costs of care at Allegiance Hospice Home are reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid, most private insurance policies, preferred provider organizations (PPOs) and other types of health plans.

The hospice-specific benefit under Medicare and Medicaid provides comprehensive coverage for services that relate to a patient’s life-limiting illness and are outlined in the patient’s plan of care. These include medications, nutritional supplements, medical supplies and equipment, and counseling services for patients and families, as well as the services of physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, therapists, bereavement specialists and chaplains.

At the Allegiance Hospice Home, room and board costs are generally billed to the patient or family, but may also be covered by a private insurance plan or Medicaid. Arrangements are made at the time of admission, and patients may request an assessment for sliding-scale eligibility. Donations made to Allegiance Hospice by area businesses, organizations and individuals help offset the costs.
