How Much Does Hospice Care Cost?

Next » « Previous


The cost of hospice care is generally much less expensive  than that of traditional healthcare treatment facilities because 90% of hospice  care is provided in the home and is primarily administered by family and loved  ones. 

According to the American Hospital Association, an average day in a hospital in 2004 cost $7,353, while insurers paid hospice programs about $120 a day per patient for most care.

The amount you pay for hospice care can vary depending upon:

    • Your insurance coverage  
    • The length of treatment, and  
    • Type and extent of services that you require.
