As a hospice provider, we understand patients and families have many questions about hospice care and eligibility for services. We’re here to answer all your questions related to hospice and how patients may qualify.
A patient can have hospice services when his or her physician believes that illness may result in death in about six months. But this is only a guess; no one knows how long anyone will live. You can continue to get hospice care as long as the hospice medical director re-certifies that you are terminally ill.
