Who Pays for Palliative Care?

Red River Valley Palliative Care is a free community service with care provided by a certified palliative nurse at no cost in your home. The palliative care nurse, in conjunction with the palliative medicine physician, makes recommendations to an individual’s primary physician for the plan of care. Our nurse communicates directly with your loved one’s primary care provider. Should our medical director or nurse practitioner need to make a visit, your insurance will be billed. Depending on insurance coverage, a copay may apply.

Cost should not be a barrier to relief. With Red River Valley Palliative Care, getting palliative care is as easy as asking for it. Tell your health care provider you’d like to add the specialists from Red River Valley Palliative Care to your medical team. Contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation, call (800) 237-4629.
