Facility that provides short periods of stay for a terminally ill person in a homelike setting for either direct care or respite. A "terminally ill" person has a life expectancy of six months or less. A hospice provides continuous care. Some health insurance plans pay benefits in full up to a maximum without a deductible for charges incurred for a terminally ill person while in a hospice care program. Also provided are bereavement benefits up to a maximum (usually $200) per family unit.
