Dr. Kate Hospice, a member of Ministry Home Care
Providing Care to Everyone, Regardless of Ability to Pay
As part of our mission, Dr. Kate Hospice provides hospice care to everyone who is medically eligible, regardless of their ability to pay. While some hospice funding is provided by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies, some people are under-insured or uninsured, with no ability to pay at all; Dr. Kate Hospice will not turn these people away. All of our patients receive the same care, regardless of their payor source.
We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses to support this important mission. Every dollar given helps us provide care to people in this local area. Funding for room and board at hospice homes is separate from the care of the team. For these costs, there is no funding through Medicare, Medicaid, or most private insurance companies. That cost is covered by the patients and their families. We do not deny lodging to any hospice patient who needs it, so your generosity helps with that as well.
Your gift of cash, stock, life insurance, or other planned gift can make a huge difference in the lives of those in the Northwoods. All funds designated for this agency are used for the care of patients and families served by this agency.
