Private Insurance 

For those who are not a Medicare/Medi-Cal beneficiary, hospice care is a benefit covered by most private insurers.

Community Benefit

As a nonprofit, community-based organization, Community Hospice has made a commitment to provide care to anyone who needs hospice services, regardless of ability to pay.

Please note that the patient and family are still responsible for any medications and treatments not related to the hospice diagnosis.
