FAQ & Facts
What are the services provided by H&A Hospice, Inc.?

We offer hospice care services for patients with life-limiting illnesses. Our staff will give the supportive care and counseling that patients require as they go through the strenuous stages of a progressing disease. We offer Skilled Nursing, Pain and Symptom Management, Medication and DME, Personal Care & Homemaking, and Counseling.

What are your criteria of eligibility for Hospice Services?

We provide hospice care to clients who have been diagnosed by the attending physician with a terminal illness. Hospice is the suitable choice for families and individual patients when aggressive curative treatment could no longer achieve recovery. Instead, we focus on helping the client become more comfortable at home as he or she deals with the symptoms of the progressing disease.

Who can make referrals for hospice care?

We accept hospice care referrals from hospitals, physicians, and the patient’s family or friends.

Will hospice care hasten the onset of dying for the patient?

Hospice Care does not, in any way, accelerate or delay the loss of life. The program focuses on the quality of life and achieving comfort for the individual.

Can you guarantee that the patient will receive appropriate hospice care services?

The care plan will be adjusted to the patient’s needs at home. We also take into account the preferences and requests from family members. We try our best to keep the patient comfortable through pain management and palliative care techniques that are specially designed for the unique health situation of the patient.

Is it possible for the patient to proceed with recuperative treatment if he or she shows signs of recovery?

Absolutely! If the patient shows signs of recovery, he or she may be discharged from hospice care and take up recuperative treatment if prescribed by the physician.

How do we pay for Hospice Care services?

We accept private pay and insurance reimbursement. Please visit our Insurance Accepted page for more information.

“In 2012, an estimated 1.5 to 1.6 1 million patients received services from hospice. This estimate includes:

  • patients who died while receiving hospice care
  • patients who received care in 2011 and who continued to receive care into 2012 (known as “carryovers”)
  • patients who left hospice care alive in 2012 for various reasons including extended prognosis, desire for curative treatment, and other reasons (known as “live discharges”)”
