Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get hospice? 
You may ask your doctor to refer you to hospice or call us at (334) 395-5000. We can contact your physician and ask if he agrees with your request for hospice care.

I know hospice is for people who do not expect to live more than six months. What if I am on hospice and I do live longer than six months? 
The hospice benefit is available for two 90 day periods and then unlimited 60 day periods. A patient does not have to be discharged from hospice just because they have lived longer than six months.

Do I have to stop seeing my primary care physician? 
No. You may continue to see your primary care physician as often as you like and he/she asks that you come in.

What if I change my mind and want to come off hospice? 
Electing the hospice benefit is a choice. You may also choose to revoke your hospice benefit at any time, for any reason, without giving a reason if you desire.

How do I contact Baptist Hospice? 
Baptist Hospice may be reached 24/7 at (334) 395-5000 or toll free at (866) 910-9597.
