Beyond hospice eligibility requirements, there are no further conditions, restrictions or barriers to accessing Iowa City Hospice’s care.
Hospice eligibility is determined when your doctor certifies that you have a limited life expectancy of six months or less, and you make a decision to discontinue aggressive cure-oriented treatments and focus on comfort and quality of life.
No one who needs care is turned away from Iowa City Hospice. Services are paid for through
Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance and the financial support of your neighbors. Through the generous support of this community, your not-for-profit hospice is able to continue our mission of caring for anyone who needs us, regardless of ability to pay.
