Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness, like cancer, heart failure or dementia. As a resource for comfort care, palliative care provides patients with an improved quality of life for themselves and their families. With palliative care, patients can also gain a better understanding of their choices for medical treatment.
Palliative care can be provided in a range of settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, patients’ homes, outpatient clinics and other specialized clinics, and can be provided by specially-trained doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.
Patients with serious illnesses benefit from palliative care as it relieves discomfort, pain and other symptoms of their diagnosis and helps prevent hospitalizations.
- Hospice care is billed on a monthly cycle, whereas palliative care is billed per visit. Unlike hospice care, palliative care billing often requires manual manipulation and includes multiple layers for billing and managing a claim. Billing for palliative care also includes claims and coding formats different from billing for hospice care.
