Gilchrist Hospice Care’s services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance companies, sponsored care and HMOs once a physician has certified that the patient has a terminal illness with a life expectancy of six months or less.

You may contact your insurance carrier, or a representative of Gilchrist Hospice Care will be able to help determine your coverage. Gilchrist Hospice Care provides care to all qualified patients regardless of their ability to pay. In-kind services and charitable care are provided through Gilchrist Hospice Care's endowment.

Covered services include:

  • In-home visits by all members of the hospice interdisciplinary team
  • Medications for pain control, symptom management and other conditions related to the life-limiting illness
  • Medical equipment and supplies
  • Bereavement support services
  • Inpatient Care
  • Respite Care

All of the above must be related to the life-limiting diagnosis to be covered under hospice care.

Note: Gilchrist Hospice Care will handle all the billing and payment of services and supplies as they relate to the life-limiting diagnosis.
