What Diagnoses Qualify for Hospice Care?

In the United States, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) determines the criteria for eligibility to be admitted to a hospice care program.

Many factors are considered when determining whether a patient qualifies for this type of care, and the criteria are considered as guidelines, not inflexible laws.

Some of these criteria are directly related to the patient’s diagnosis, and others are not. The final determination of whether a patient will begin hospice care is made by the patient’s physician, with the agreement of the patient and family.

Medicare and Medicaid cover all costs for respite and hospice care services.
