FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who qualifies for Hospice?

                To qualify for hospice care, your physician must certify you as being terminally ill.  An individual is considered to be terminally ill if death is expected within six months or less.  This does not mean care will only be provided for six months.  Hospice can be provided as long as the person’s physician and hospice team certify the condition remains life-limiting.

Who pays for hospice?

                Heartsway Hospice provides services regardless of the ability to pay.  We accept reimbursement from insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, donations and memorials.

Is it time for hospice?

                At any time during a life-limiting illness, it is appropriate to discuss all of the patient’s care options.  Hospice care is an option and choice you make to enhance life for a person dealing with life threatening illness. The patient and family are encouraged to discuss hospice care at any time with their physician and other healthcare professionals.  By law, the decision belongs to the patient. Understandably, most people are uncomfortable with the idea of stopping an all-out effort to beat the disease.  Heartsway hospice staff members are highly sensitive to these concerns and are always available to discuss them with the patient, the family, and the physician.
