Hospice insurance coverage

Insurance Coverage for Hospice Care

Hospice care is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. The hospice care team will verify a patient's eligibility and determine their coverage options. They will also help you understand the differences in hospice services, such as in-home hospice care versus the different levels of inpatient care.

Your hospice care team will help you and your family every step of the way during your hospice experience. UnityPoint home care specialists will work with your insurance provider to verify your coverage.
