Sondra - Medicare & Medicaid cover different types of care. Medicare is federal & hospice is a benefit which pays the hospice provider 100%. However on average, hospice will be limited to 2 -4 visits a week from hospice staff (which may not be a RN but an aide or CNA) for a few hours. For at home hospice, family is required to have caregivers that are there 24/7 for all other caregiving. Family or the elder is responsible for paying for those caregivers or family does for free.

For hospice in a facility, the room & board charges are NOT covered by Medicare. R&B are either private pay, LTC insurance or Medicaid. Again hospice comes to the facility, 2-4 times a week to provide care in tandem with nursing staff at the facility.

You have to qualify medically for hospice. Your MD will need to write orders for a hospice consult. The medical director of the hospice will evaluate (usually an RN does the on site review) and determine if hospice is appropriate. Hospice requires reevaluation for renewals too.
