How is Residential Care Paid?
Room and board fees are paid by the patient and/or family. Medicare and Medicaid do not cover residence room and board. However, some private insurers and long-term care providers may. Medical insurers such as Medicare, Medicaid, and managed care plans do cover the cost of the hospice care, medications and medical equipment provided at the hospice residence, just as it would be covered in one’s own home.
