Who Pays For Hospice?

If you are considering hospice care for yourself or a loved one, you might be wondering about paying for hospice. Rest assured, at Horizons Hospice, we bill directly to Medicare and Medicaid for our hospice care services. 

The vast majority of our hospice patients have their hospice benefits covered through Medicare, but there are a number of ways to pay for hospice care in Houston. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you pay for hospice.

Medicare Coverage for Hospice Care

For Medicare beneficiaries, our hospice services will be covered under Medicare Part A. 

Medicaid Coverage for Hospice Care

In Texas, the same hospice services and benefits available under Medicare are also available and covered under Medicaid for those that qualify.

Our hospice services are usually 100 percent covered through Medicare and in most cases cover all aspects of hospice care, including medications, supplies, and any required durable medical equipment that might be related to the diagnosis. However, every patient’s treatment plan is tailored to their needs and individual wishes – it’s best to contact our office and speak directly to a member of our staff to get all your questions answered.
