Medical services, outpatient drugs and biologicals, counseling and bereavement and attending physician or Nurse Practitioner services are paid for by the hospice provider. Patients may be asked to meet co-pay or other uncovered costs. However, no one will ever be turned down for financial reasons. There is no limit under Medicare, and the physician and hospice program medical director will periodically re-certify that patient has a life expectancy of six months or less, if disease follows its normal course.
Sometimes patients get better while on hospice care, or they wish to resume curative measures in their care.
Most patients admitted to a hospice program are referred by their physicians. Others come themselves or are referred by the hospital, a community agency, or by a friend or relative.

Family members may request counseling even if the patient does not wish to be admitted to the program. Sometimes doctors wait for their patients to bring up the subject of hospice care, while patients assume their doctor will tell them when they need hospice care. Doctors are afraid to talk about dying, too! Also, some patients demand more treatment, not realizing treatment options may no longer be effective.
