Hospice selected for Medicare program
STUART — Treasure Coast Hospice has been selected to participate in the Medicare Care Choices Model announced by Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell. The model provides Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for coverage under the Medicare Hospice Benefit and dually eligible beneficiaries who qualify for the Medicaid Hospice Benefit the option to elect to receive supportive care services typically provided by hospice and continue to receive curative services at the same time.
“This is a welcome opportunity — patients and families can only benefit from additional support when faced with chronic illness and complex health care decisions,” said Dr. Tiffany Weakley of Stuart.
Treasure Coast Hospice is a non-profit community organization of caring professionals and dedicated volunteers whose mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high quality care for our patients and those who share their lives in St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties. Services are available to anyone regardless of their ability to pay, including respite care, counseling and bereavement services.
