What Is Hospice Care > Who is Eligible for Hospice

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, you may be eligible for hospice care.

Although a physician’s order is required to admit you or your loved one into hospice care, anyone may make a referral.  In fact, most of our calls are from loved ones inquiring whether hospice care may be an option for their family.

Patients with a diagnosis of 6 months or less can be cared for under the hospice benefit of Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances. As a not-for-profit hospice, we care for all in our community, regardless of ability to pay.
