How much will I have to pay for hospice care?

Medicare pays the hospice provider for your hospice care. There’s no deductible. You’ll pay:

No more than $5 for each prescription drug and other similar products for pain relief and symptom control.
5% of the Medicare-approved amount for inpatient respite care.

For example, if Medicare pays $100 per day for inpatient respite care, you’ll pay $5 per day. The amount you pay for respite care can change each year.
