Who Pays for Hospice?

Hospice is a 100% covered Medicare/Medicaid benefit for services related to the hospice diagnosis. Rivercross Hospice accommodates most private insurance companies and offers additional payment options. In cases where no insurance is available, a financial needs assessment will be completed for those individuals. Hospice provides professional services regardless of the ability to pay.

Rivercross Hospice services are provided without regard to age, race, color, creed, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, diagnosis or ability to pay.

Anyone suffering from a life-limiting, terminal disease can receive Hospice services. Our focus is on care, not cure.
