Eligibility and the Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs)

   In order to be eligible to elect hospice care under Medicare an individual must be entitled to Part A of Medicare and certified as being terminally ill by a physician and having a prognosis of 6 months or less if the disease runs its normal course.

   Hospice is also paid for through Medicare Hospice Benefit, Medicaid Hospice benefit, and most private insurers. Gateway accepts Medicaid and most commercial insurances.

   The LCDs are used as guidelines to help a physician determine hospice eligibility. Gateway hospice provides complimentary screenings for eligibility, contact us at 1-877-878-2244.
