Hospice Care FAQs

  • Studies in people with cancer and heart failure showed that those on hospice lived longer than those receiving active treatment
  • About 15% of people on hospice are discharged due to a stabilization or improvement in their health

Especially for people over age 70, going to the hospital has many risks. People with restricted mobility or cognitive impairment are at higher risk for hospital-associated decline. Consistent monitoring by hospice RNs and CNAs helps prevent the development of problems that would require hospital or ER admission.

People on hospice can revoke service at any time if they choose to pursue other treatments

  • Medications that effectively treat symptoms of your primary diagnosis can continue to be provided; each hospice has their own formulary (list of covered medications)
  • Medications unrelated to your hospice diagnosis can be paid under the Medicare PART D benefit or other private insurance

The selection of your attending physician is up to you
