I've just been told by an advance person for a hospice company desirous of getting our business that Medicare does NOT pay for hospice, in facility, but only for the treating care staff. Apparently the daily rate in our area is about $300 daily. I had thought from reading the posts here that Medicare paid for in-facility hospice care. Apparently I'm mistaken? Has this been the situation for those who've used hospice, that any in-facility placement is out of pocket, even though the staff, meds, etc. are covered by Medicare? I'm going to call Medicare to verify as well, but would appreciate input from others. Thanks much.
