How Long Can I Receive Hospice Care?

The Medicare hospice benefit is a lifetime benefit, which means that an individual is entitled to the services as long as they qualify. In other words, there is no way for you to “use up” your hospice benefits. At Dignity Hospice of Utah, we encourage you to consider electing your hospice entitlement for yourself or your loved ones earlier rather than later to allow you to enjoy the full benefits of the service. If you would like to learn more about the hospice benefit and what is included in our hospice services in Utah, we welcome you to contact us today. We are eager to care for you and your loved ones.
