Care Choices

Indiana University Health provides you and your family with the opportunity to receive supportive services — such as emotional or spiritual care, pain and symptom management, and care coordination — while at the same time receiving treatment for your terminal condition.

Under previous Medicare rules, patients who had a life-limiting illnesses had to choose to either continue receiving treatment or choose the support services provided through hospice care. But the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) put the Medicare Care Choices Model into effect, which now allows eligible patients to concurrently receive treatment for their terminal condition and select hospice services that can benefit them.

Care Choices Treatment Information

An interdisciplinary approach to care

IU Health Hospice – Care Choices introduces this new care option months earlier in the treatment plan than what was possible before. Now a broader
spectrum of care providers, ranging from registered nurses to chaplain to social worker, can collaborate to provide wraparound support services while
you or your family member continue receiving treatments for a terminal condition.

Not only does this empower your family with a greater knowledge and support base, but evidence also suggests that patients who receive this
supportive care experience less discomfort and stress during treatment, resulting in a better quality of life and a higher ability to return to normal
activity.
