I poured through the policy documents.


It seems that Medicare part A pays for hospice provided it is in a hospital setting or in a facility directed by hospice. I also found that on the .gov website.


Ok


But..Medicare Part B is totally silent on this topic. Is it not covered if the service is delivered in home? I see that some of the drugs are covered...but, not clear if that is a part of part B or if you need to rely on Part D


Anyone have some insight? Does hospice need to be in a facility to be covered by Medicare? Anyone have a reference or website to direct me to?

My husband was on hospice care in our home. Medicare paid for all of it, including the hospice drugs. We paid nothing.

It is my understanding that hospice services are covered by Medicare no matter where they take place. They don't pay for room/board at a facility, just the hospice service.
