We now offer our hospice patients a safe, secure, convenient and flexible method of paying their co-pays and bills through our online bill payment feature. Each transaction is encrypted, logged and stored, making it easy to retrieve the transaction information.
Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice accepts many types of health insurance for hospice care payment including traditional Medicare and Medicaid, Medicare or Medicaid Advantage plans, and many other private insurance plans including Blue Cross and other health maintenance or preferred provider organizations (HMO’s and PPO’s).
When Medicare Part A is billed for hospice services, payment is accepted as payment in full for services provided. There are no deductibles or co-insurance (co-pay) requirements for these services.
Under the Medicare hospice benefit, Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice is responsible to provide or arrange for all medications, DME equipment and infusion therapy that are related to the hospice diagnosis. View our services covered under the Medicare and Medicaid Hospice Benefit and by most other insurance plans.
If services are ordered which are not covered by the Medicare program as the services are not related to the hospice diagnosis, we will notify you in advance so that you can make other financial arrangements for the necessary care.
Medicare Advantage plan converts to Medicare for the hospice benefit. You must notify your nurse or therapist immediately if there is a change in insurance coverage. Pre-authorization of services is required by most managed care and private insurance plans. Payment may be denied by the insurance company for all services provided if authorization is not obtained.
When managed care or private insurances including HMO’s and PPO’s are billed for services, your hospice benefit is based on a contract between you and your insurance company. You will be responsible for any charges not paid by your insurance company, including but not limited to deductibles, co-insurance (co-pay) amounts, or services provided by out of network providers. These amounts will be billed to you according to your individual insurance plan.
