Jacqueline Holloman The Other Side of Hospice What is the difference between in ON Hospice, and being IN hospice? A person needs to have a life expectancy of 6 months or less from a terminal condition to in IN hospice. Being ON hospice means a person has a condition that will ultimately lead to their death. Hospice is paid for by Medicare, and to qualify for Hospice you must have a physicians’ referral. Hospice provides the patient and family with a registered nurse, certified nursing assistant, and a chaplain. The RN and CNA typically visit 3-4/week independent of each other. If you work, if you are taking care of a loved one, or you know of someone who would benefit from this service, they all need hospice. Hospice is your other set of eyes, and ears for loved ones.
