Medicare Advantage Plans and the hospice benefit

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

You can still get Medicare coverage for treatment for all illnesses and injuries unrelated to your terminal condition. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, Original Medicare also pays for curative treatments unrelated to your terminal condition after you elect hospice. However, if you follow plan rules concerning your care, such as using network providers, you will owe your usual Medicare Advantage co-pays for any care you receive. If you do not follow plan rules for care (e.g., you do not use your Medicare Advantage Plan’s network of providers), you will pay the usual costs for care under Original Medicare. There will also be different costs and coverage for your prescription medications unrelated to your terminal condition.
