  • Hospice programs provide patients and their families with palliative and supportive care to meet the special needs arising out of physical, psychological, spiritual, social, and economic stresses experienced during the final stages of illness, and during dying and bereavement.

  • For children under age twenty-one (21) who are receiving hospice services, medically necessary curative services are covered, in addition to palliative care.
