As a Hospice of the West Patient, Can I Choose to Stop Receiving Services?
Yes. Sometimes a patient’s health improves or their illness goes into remission. Your physician or our Medical Director may feel that you no longer qualify for our care. Also, as a Hospice of the West patient, you may choose to stop receiving care for any reason. If you stop your care, you will receive the type of insurance coverage that you had before electing Hospice of the West’s care, such as the original Medicare plan or Medicaid plan or a Medicare+Choice Plan. If you are eligible, you can return, electing to receive care from Hospice of the West at any time.
