Hospice care is generally covered by insurance, including Medicare. As to the cost, many things would be considered: Is someone with the person day and night? How much of that care is medical? What other duties do they provide? Is this in the home or in a hospice home or other location?

If you are wondering if they are quoting you wrong figures, you can check with www.ltcombdusman.org and find the ombudsman for your area. These people could help you find ways to check this out.
Take care,
Carol
