Questions To Ask When Choosing A Hospice
All hospice providers are not the same. Here are a few helpful questions to ask when choosing a hospice:
How long have you been in operation?
How many patients do you serve?
Are you Medicare certified? What forms of insurance do you take?
How do you measure and track quality?
What is the admission process?
Can I keep my Primary Care Physician?
What is the average number of visits Hospice Aides and Nurses will make per week?
What is your response time after hours and weekends?
Who are your Medical Directors and how will they be involved?
Whom do I call with questions, comments, or concerns?
Do you have other programs that will benefit me?
