Does My Insurance Cover Hospice Care in Arizona?
The cost of hospice care is fully covered by Medicare and other major health insurance providers. Whether you have Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance, Aleca hospice will work with them to ensure that you pay as little out of pocket as possible.
Regarding Medicare coverage, Medicare recipients will pay nothing for hospice care, provided this care is administered by a Medicare-certified hospice. That said, it’s important to remember that hospice care often involves additional services––prescription medications, durable medical equipment, and respite care––that are not fully covered by Medicare.
At Aleca hospice, our team of financial advisors works closely with patients and families to figure out the most effective ways to pay for services. In addition to Medicare, patients may also use private insurance, Medicaid, Medigap, or Medicare Advantage plans to help cover the cost of hospice care. To help you figure out which coverage options might work with your needs, contact our representatives. They can walk you through the process of hospice care coverage for Arizona residents and figure out how it can best work with Aleca hospice services.

Arizona Hospice Treatments
Often, families don’t call hospice until the final weeks of their loved one’s life; however, this approach only makes things harder on them and their loved ones. Proactive implementation of hospice care allows patients to receive specialized nursing care, medications, medical equipment, and support related to their loved one’s terminal illness––usually at no cost.
While the name often scares people, hospice care improves a patient’s quality of life through pain and symptom management. It also provides families with the support––both medical and emotional––to work through an incredibly difficult time.
If your loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should consider contacting hospice care:
- Frequent ER visits or readmissions into the hospital
- An inability to perform tasks of daily living (eating, dressing, walking, and toileting)
- Frequent falls and inability to get back up
- Decline in mental acuity
- Progressive weight loss
- Infections, skin tears, or other signs of deteriorating health
With Aleca hospice care in Arizona, families receive an additional layer of support for their loved ones, either in their home or care facility. Together, physicians, nurses, social workers, and volunteers will work with families to help honor their loved ones’ end-of-life journeys. When a patient receives hospice care from Aleca, they’ll gain a team of emotional, physical, and spiritual support. This, combined with a dedicated medical care team can help everyone make the most of one’s last living days.

Is Hospice a place?
Hospice is a service, not a place. Hospice care is provided wherever you reside. In some short-term circumstances for caregiver respite or uncontrolled symptom management Aleca hospice can provide in-patient care in our beautiful short-term nursing and rehabilitation facilities.
Will Hospice hasten my death?
No, hospice provides comfort care that promotes quality of life. Through symptom management patients who receive hospice care report more quality of life and sometimes increased length of life as suffering is relieved. Some patients improve on hospice care and return to other care models.
How will I receive Hospice care?
Hospice goes beyond physical care. When you arrange for hospice services, you have access to a dedicated team that includes a social worker, chaplain and compassionate volunteers. Our interfaith chaplain can provide spiritual guidance, while social workers offer secular counseling and help the patient access community resources. Hospice provides services for the patient and for the family and caregivers supporting the patient.
Does Hospice care require hospitalization?
No, hospice has a goal to keep you out of the hospital. Hospice staff are available 24 hours a day to provide support, answer questions or make a visit for symptom management. Hospice care offers more flexibility in where patients spend their remaining time. With more options, you can choose to spend as much time as possible in a soothing place, surrounded by our caring staff and your loved ones.
What about my family?
Many patients in the final stages of life are concerned about how their friends and family members are coping. Our social workers and chaplain are here to help your loved ones through this difficult time. Volunteers may be provided to help relieve family members who are caring for their loved ones at home. Hospice also provides continued bereavement support for 13 months after a loved one passes away to anyone that may be in need.
What is the cost for Hospice care?
Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Veterans Affairs and private insurance typically pay for hospice care. While each hospice program has its own policy regarding payment for care, services are often offered based on need rather than the ability to pay. Aleca is an approved Medicare provider. If you have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and meet the Medicare conditions, you pay nothing for hospice care.
