What is Hospice and can I receive it while on Medicare?

Often people ask me if Hospice is covered under Medicare? My answer is “yes it is.”  I think that it is an under utilized benefit and is often called upon when a patient is near death. I also encourage my clients and their caregivers to reach out to Hospice early in the decline process and allow Hospice to determine what is needed and is best for their loved ones, at that time.
