Medicare coverage of hospice care in any setting depends upon a physician’s certification that an individual’s prognosis is a life expectancy of six month or less if the terminal illness runs its normal course. Medicare does not require the patient to be homebound. These guidelines are intended to be used to assess if the clinical status and anticipated progression of disease is more likely than not to result in a life expectancy of six months or less.
