Any patient with limited life expectancy, whose desire is to have physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort, may apply for hospice care. The patient’s primary physicians and Mt. Sinai Hospice Inc.'s Medical Director must authorize the start of hospice care.
Mt.Sinai Hospice is a Medicare / Medi-Cal licensed & certified provider which accepts patients regardless of age, gender, nationality, race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, diagnosis, availability of primary caregiver, or ability to pay.
Hospice services are covered by most insurance policies. No one is refused services because of inability to pay. Admission to hospice is based on the patient's eligibility and need, not the ability to pay.
