Who pays for hospice care?

Medicare and Medi-Cal cover the full cost of hospice care. Most private insurance plans also cover hospice care, and the reimbursements vary by plan. In our continued effort to insure that patients receive expert end-of-life care and support, costs for hospice care that are not covered by private insurance can be adjusted. These adjustments are based on a sliding scale and ability to pay.

Because of generous support from the community, no patient is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. We can help with any questions you may have about how hospice care is paid for.

If you have any questions, please call our helpful staff at (831) 430-3000.
