The Hospice Benefit for Veterans
The Veterans Health Administrations benefits include hospice care. If you are a veteran you may be eligible for care.
We Honor Veterans is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These entities invite hospice organizations, such as Accredited Hospices of America, to partner with them to focus on providing compassionate and respectful care for America’s veterans.
Our staff are specially trained in meeting the unique needs of veterans such as service-related illnesses, PTSD, psychosocial issues and others. As part of We Honor Veterans, Accredited Hospices of America works with the VA and the families of veterans to ensure these patients receive the specialized assistance they need.
Accredited Hospices of America strongly believes that those who have served in our military should receive excellent care and coordinated services when they face serious illness. To this end, we actively partner with the VA to educate patients and families on available benefits, help patients apply for those benefits and work as a team with VA medical staff. In many cases, veterans and their families can access both VA and Medicare benefits. Our admissions and billing staff can assist you in accessing all the services to which you are entitled.
Accredited Hospices of America would like to thank all the veterans who have served and to active military currently serving our country!
