Palliative Care Comfort and pain relief for anyone with a serious illness, regardless of life prognosis, whether they are expected to be cured or to live years. Hospice is a form of Palliative Care. Medicare pays for the Hospice form of Palliative Care for those with a prognosis of 6-months to live or less. Other Palliative Care programs can be customized to include Hospital Palliative Care programs, Insurance based Palliative Care programs and even Private Pay Palliative Care programs.
