Residential Level of Care

Posted by:Kendall Bassett onJuly 17, 2017

Residential level of care is for patients who lack the caregiving that their physical condition warrants. There is no limit to the amount of time patients spend in residential care; however, a Hospice Home residential patient must maintain a prognosis of less than thirty days. If a patient stops meeting the Hospice Home residential criteria, we will begin transfer planning to hospice care in the community setting.
Patients who access residential level care will be charged a Room and Board fee. The Room and Board fee is not covered by Medicare, but may be covered by Medicaid and some private insurances including long term care insurance. A reduced fee may be available based on financial need. No patient is ever turned away for inability to pay.
