What’s the difference between hospice care and palliative care?

It’s easy to confuse hospice and palliative care, as they are quite similar. While the main focus of each is to ease the symptoms of incurable illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease, dementia, kidney failure and more — hospice care is typically reserved for those with less than six months to live.

Palliative Care

Anyone with a serious illness

Care is focused on treating disease symptoms to make patients more 
comfortable, and can begin as early as the diagnosis 
Patients can continue treatment for the illness, but don’t have to

Treatment can occur in patients’ homes, hospitals, nursing homes or assisted living facilities

Some private insurance companies will pay for palliative care, but it depends on the individual’s plan and what type of treatment is necessary

Medicare may cover palliative care charges, but it depends on specific needs (such as medication or length of treatment)

icon-2

Hospice Care

Anyone with a terminal illness

Doctors have identified the disease isn’t responding to treatments and the 
patient is expected to live for less than six months 
Patients’ care focuses on symptoms alone rather than a cure

Treatment can occur in patients’ homes, hospice care centers, hospitals, nursing homes or assisted living facilities

Many private insurance companies will pay for hospice care, but it depends on the individual’s plan

Medicare covers all hospice care charges with a physician's referral
