A Team Approach to Medical Care
Palliative care is truly a partnership; it involves everyone - you, your family and all of your physicians and specialists. We will work closely with your attending physician and current team. Hope Palliative Care is provided by physicians, nurse practitioners and social workers. Massage therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists, spiritual care counselors and others may also be part of the team.
Paying for Palliative Care
In most instances, palliative care clinical visits are covered by Medicare, Medicaid or your private insurance. In some cases, a co-payment is required. A Hope representative will help you determine what fees, if any, apply with your particular health care coverage.
