How is Hospice Paid for?

Medical expenses should not and will not prevent you from receiving comfort care at the end of life. Hospice care is typically covered in full by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance providers.

Hospice of the Red River Valley bills directly to Medicare, Medicaid and/or private insurance for hospice care. These benefits usually cover 100 percent of hospice care, including medical equipment, supplies and medications for the terminal diagnosis and related conditions. Hospice encourages early referrals so our patients and their loved ones may receive the maximum benefits available through the comprehensive services we provide.

Because of the generous support of our donors, no one is turned away from Hospice of the Red River Valley because of an inability to pay. Contact us to learn more about hospice care, or make a donation to help ensure this care is available to anyone in our service area who needs it—now and into the future.
