How is Hospice paid for?

Hospice services are covered by most insurance plans, Medicare and Medical Assistance. Hospice services that are not covered by insurance will be provided by Northfield Hospice at no cost to the patient or the family.

When hospice patients receive services outside the scope of Hospice care from a physician or at a care facility, they will be billed, as usual, by those professionals or agencies.
