Who Pays for Hospice Care?
All Medicare-covered services you get while in hospice care are covered under Original Medicare, even if you were previously in a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) or other Medicare health plan.
The hospice benefit allows you and your family to stay together in the comfort of your home, unless you need care in an inpatient facility. If A Bliss Hospice Care determines that you need inpatient hospice care, A Bliss Hospice Care will make the arrangements for your stay.

caregiving responsibilities, provided occasionally and patients can stay in an inpatient care facility hospital up to
5 consecutive days per respite period.
