Compass Regional Hospice relies upon fundraising and donations for more than 30 percent of its operating expenses. Medicare, Medicaid and most private health plans provide reimbursement for only a portion of the expenses associated with hospice care, and there is no source of reimbursement for Hospice Center room and board expenses or grief support services we provide to hospice patient families and community members. For this reason we rely heavily upon gifts from individuals and businesses to help us continue to provide the highest quality of care to all who need it.
Your generosity funds many of the other programs we offer including Bridges, Compass Kids and The Hope & Healing Center.
Here’s how you can help ensure that everyone who needs hospice care and grief support is served, regardless of their ability to pay.
