Eligibility

Admission Criteria

To be eligible for Hospice services, a patient receives comfort care rather than curative care. The patient’s attending physician and the Cornerstone Hospice team must also conclude that the patient has a diagnosis that meets the qualifications for Hospice care. The staff conducts a patient evaluation to help determine if Hospice services are appropriate for all referred patients. Cornerstone Hospice will thoroughly discuss the Hospice philosophy and its services with patients and their families. Cornerstone Hospice will maintain contact with the patient’s physician for the supervision of their care.

Who Pays?

Payer Source – Medicare, Medicaid and Private Insurance pay 100% of hospice benefits with no out of pocket expenses for the care received. The services include all professional visits and services, medications related to terminal illness and equipment and supplies related to patient’s terminal illness.
