Hospice of South Texas patients are provided with the highest quality of care regardless of their ability to pay. Hospice services are offered to individuals with a wide variety of diagnosis, and admission is based on medical need, not availability of funds.
Medicare and Medicaid cover Hospice services at 100%. Most private insurance companies also have a Hospice benefit. Since 1985, community support from grants, memorials, contributions and fundraising activities have made it possible for Hospice of South Texas to care for individuals with no other source of funding.
