Hospice by County Listing

 

Hospices provides comprehensive care to the terminally ill including skilled nursing, social work, spiritual care, bereavement and volunteer services.

The hospice benefit is covered by most private pay insurance as well as Medicare and Medicaid. Certain insurance companies may restrict use to agencies with which they contract.

Hospices are licensed as such by New Jersey Department of Health and certified for hospice by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  

Agencies may elect to be accredited by one of the following: - Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) - Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) - The Joint Commission (TJC)

The Hospice by County listing is available for download in pdf format.

The questions and answers below are offered by the Home Care & Hospice Association of NJ to provide advice to patients and families considering hospice care, or who have already been admitted to hospice care.  While each hospice agency has its own set of rules and policies, all New Jersey hospices must satisfy the Medicare Hospice Benefit Conditions of Participation and the State of New Jersey’s laws regarding hospice care and related matters.

The advice given below reflects general practice among hospices in New Jersey – however, the final decisions regarding care of a patient and family are the responsibility of the hospice providing care.
