Excerpt
The eligibility requirements for hospice care vary depending on who is providing the service. The requirements for most programs are based on those of the Medicare Hospice Benefit (MHB), but many hospices have broader eligibility criteria so persons not eligible for the MHB can be admitted for care. The MHB can be used by persons who are certified by a physician as having a terminal illness (that is, a life expectancy of6 months or less). Because predicting life expectancy is an inexact science, a person may be re-certified for the MHB indefinitely as long as he/she meets the Medicare eligibility criteria (2,4–7).
