Palliative Care & Medicare: Seniors Should Consider End-Of-Life Options
An important aspect of end-of-life planning is end-of-life health care. Great advances in medical technology have made it possible to extend life, and at the same time, have created philosophical quandaries about quality of life and a patient’s right to choose or refuse life-sustaining measures. In this context hospice and palliative care were developed, which offer comfort care when treatment may no longer be effective or best for that person. Moreover, the patient has the right to choose palliative care and hospice but should also be aware of what their insurance will cover.
