Withdrawing from Hospice Care

What if a person changes their mind about hospice?

Your choice to remain on hospice is truly that, your choice. If while under hospice care, you decide to pursue curative treatment options or for other reasons choose to leave hospice, you may do so. 

Lumina Hospice & Palliative Care staff will provide information to help in the decision making process and respect the choice that is made.

Under Medicare, a person who has revoked their hospice benefit may return to hospice care as long as eligibility requirements are met. Private insurance companies' policies may vary and should be understood prior to making revocation decisions.
