Demographics

*Patients with Medicare can be reimbursed for medications related to management of terminal diagnosis when enrolled in hospice program. To qualify, prescriptions must be filled on or after the day that patient enrolls in hospice. 

If the patient/family fill prescriptions here or on the way home from the hospital, they need to save receipts and give to HCI when enrolling later that day. After enrolled with HCI, families pick up meds and pay $5 co-pay, and pharmacy will bill Hospice Care, Inc. for the balance.
