People With Medicare
What does it cost?
Medicare pays the hospice for most of your care. There is generally no deductible or coinsurance for hospice care. You only will have to pay your hospice provider:
- $5 or less for each drug. This includes prescription drugs and other products to help pain and symptoms
- 5% of the cost of inpatient respite care that Medicare approves. For example, if Medicare pays $100 per day for inpatient respite care, you will pay $5 per day.
