Updated: May 7, 2023

" the last year of life total costs of care to Medicare beneficiaries who used hospice were 3.1% lower than for patients who did not use it. The study found longer lengths of hospice stay netted even greater savings. For patients who spent the last six months of their lives in hospice, Medicare spending was an average 11% lower than it was for patients who did not receive hospice care."
