Hospice Payments

Divine Hospice will work with each patient and their family to determine the appropriate payer source for hospice care. Hospice can be paid for by Medicare, Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare, VA benefits and private insurances.

Medicare

If a patient with Medicare meets all of the required criteria, Medicare covers hospice care at 100%.  Visit www.medicare.gov to learn much more about the Medicare hospice benefit.

Medicaid (Medical Assistance)

According to the Minnesota Network of Hospice & Palliative Care:

If you are eligible for Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare, you have a hospice benefit which includes the same services as the Medicare Hospice Benefit. To find out if you are eligible for coverage, contact your county’s Public Healthcare Program by visiting the Minnesota Department of Health website at: http://www.health.state.mn.us/clearinghouse/public.htm
