Who May Receive Hospice Care?
                   The focus of hospice care is on palliative
                   medicine and supportive services rather
                   than the curative or cure-oriented therapies
                   and interventions.  Patients who have been
                   certified with a terminal prognosis by the
                   primary physician or hospice medical
                   director are considered for the program.  
                   Hospice care is a covered Medicare
                   benefit.  Following the development of the
                   Medicare Hospice Benefit, commercial
                   insurance carriers began to offer hospice
