St. Joseph Catholic Hospice provides care at no charge to our patients and their families. As a Medicare-certified hospice program, a patient’s insurance is billed for services provided. However, many people do not have adequate insurance coverage, and some have no coverage at all. These people are not turned away from our care. If an appropriate referral is made to our program, we will provide care based on need.
Third-party reimbursement is only a portion of what is needed to operate a hospice program. As a non-profit program we are able to provide our special program of care in part due to the generosity of community friends, businesses, churches, civic groups and foundations.
St. Joseph Catholic Hospice benefits from planned gifts such as securities properties, insurance and gifts of trusts or bequests. All contributions go directly to patient care.
