Paying For Specialized Care
During these challenging times, we need ways to pay for healthcare that fosters delivery of superior value of care to patients. In HealthNew healthcare, we give our patients and their families the superior value of care they deserve. We have been recognized as one of the top healthcare providers in the Bay area covering the major cities.
We understand that nursing homes can be costly and overwhelming. But with us, we have different financial options to lessen the financial burden. We have the Medicare, Medicaid, and Department of Veterans Affairs, and other private institutions.
Majority of HealthNow Hospice patients are covered by Medicare Hospice Benefit. The two main plan coverage of Medicare are the Original Medicare which has Part A and B and a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C). We cover Hospice care under Medicare Part A which guarantees the patient and family with no additional cost. The Medicare Hospice Benefit provides the terminally ill with financial backing so it does not burden the family with end-of-life care. A patient who is eligible and has Medicare Part A coverage are those diagnosed with 6 months or fewer to live and has accepted comfort care and has given up on treatments to cure their illness.
Just like Medicare, Medicaid is also available at no cost to the patient and their family. Most states have Medicaid available for hospice care. Although some state Medicaid programs may have slightly different eligibility requirements, most of the states have the same requirements under Medicare and Medicaid: they must diagnose patients with a terminal illness with only 6 months or less to live and patients must accept comfort over cure. Medicaid is a joint federal and state program providing free or low-cost health coverage to low-income individuals, families, pregnant women, people with disabilities, and seniors or the elderly.
Veteran’s Administration (VA) benefits
Veteran’s Administration offers hospice care as part of their VA Standard Medical Benefits Package. All enrolled veterans are eligible once they meet the requirements and clinical need for the service. There are no co-pays for hospice care, whether it is an organization with a VA contract or it is provided by the veteran’s administration itself.
While most private insurance companies model their Hospice benefit coverage on the Medicare Hospice Benefit program, coverage may still vary. Many work-based and private insurance plans provide at least some coverage for hospice care, and there are also those that offer full coverage. There are also different ways we can consider a person eligible for hospice and what costs it covers can vary based entirely on the health plan that they have.
Other Insurance Assistance
However, for those people who are not insured, there are some hospice organizations that may still offer hospice care at no cost or at a reduced rate based on employment status or the ability to pay. We make this possible through donations, charity grants and other sources. There are absolutely a lot of ways to get HealthNow Hospice Care at the end-of-the life treatment.
