Some medications, equipment, and supplies will be covered 100% if they are related to the hospice diagnosis. Items such as…
Medications for pain and symptom control
Beds, walkers, and commodes (if needed)
Oxygen (if ordered)
Medications, supplies, equipment and medical services may be covered 100% under the patient’s Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance hospice benefit if they are authorized by the physician and are related to the patient’s terminal diagnosis. Those recommended for circumstances not related to the patient’s terminal illness may be obtained by the patient, but will not be paid for by the hospice.
