HealthEast Hospice Care Program Fund
Through the generosity of donors, HealthEast Hospice Care is able to offer services to all patients and their families regardless of ability to pay. The Hospice Care Program Fund exists to financially assist Hospice patients in need. Patients and families may request financial assistance when:
- Insurance does not meet the patient's need for Hospice Care
- The patient has an unusual need or extreme circumstances that create a financial hardship
To apply for Hospice support funds, a Financial Assessment Form must be completed and returned to Hospice Care. Forms can be obtained from Hospice staff upon request.
