It can be hard for doctors to know how long a person will live. Some people live longer than expected. If you live longer than six months, you can continue on Hospice as long as you meet eligibility criteria.
There are times when a patient's medical condition improves and Hospice services may no longer be appropriate. At that time our hospice team of professionals will work with you to establish an alternative plan of care. If at a later time you are in need of Hospice services, Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance will provide coverage for your return to our program, based on eligibility criteria.
