What is not covered by Medicare

Hospice of Warren County accepts Medicare and Medicaid coverage as payment in full for Hospice services. Most private insurers also cover our services. We do not refuse care to someone based on his or her lack of insurance or inability to pay. The scope of Hospice services is defined by the Medicare Hospice Benefit.


Treatment and services to cure your life-limiting illness are not covered under the Hospice Medicare Benefit. You should talk to your doctor if you are thinking about treatment to cure your illness. As a Hospice patient, you always have the right to stop getting Hospice care and to seek treatment.

For more information about the Hospice Medicare Benefit, pleases visit the official Medicare government website and read their publication about Hospice:
