Family members, physicians, home health nurses, social workers, clergy, friends or neighbors can refer a patient to us. Patients can also call us to start Hospice care.
Hospice care is covered under most insurance plans. However, if the insurance plan does not have a Hospice Benefit or if the cost of a patient’s care exceeds what insurance will pay, the patient’s care will not be affected. In these cases, patients may apply through the finance department and demonstrate financial need and if the patient meets the requirements, assistance with meeting costs directly related to the patient’s terminal illness will be provided. At Conemaugh Regional Hospice, care is provided without regard to race, color, age, gender, religion, national origin, handicapping condition or ability to pay.
