Palliative Care is Not the Same as Hospice Care
Hospice care is meant for people in the final months of life. Non-hospice palliative care, on the other hand, is available to you at any time during your illness. Unlike Hospice, you can also receive palliative care at the same time as you’re receiving treatments to cure you.
Insurance Will Likely Cover the Cost of Palliative Care
Most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, cover palliative care services. It is handled like other medical services, such as oncology or cardiology.
