How Is Hospice Paid For

feature-photo-96315913
The cost of healthcare should never be an obstacle to quality end-of-life care. It’s important to understand that no one is ever denied care based upon the inability to pay at Northern Illinois Hospice.

  • Covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies
  • Patients/families with insurance are billed, as required by law, for any applicable copays, deductibles, and out-of-pocket expenses
