Description of Organization and Service Provided
Iowa City Hospice is a community-based not-for-profit organization that offers care to patients, families and their loved ones throughout the dying and bereavement processes. Services are available to anyone who resides in the seven-county service area of Johnson, Cedar, Iowa, Linn, Louisa, Muscatine and Washington Counties, regardless of their ability to pay.
In addition to hospice and bereavement care, Iowa City Hospice's services include caregiver support and advance care planning guidance through Honoring Your Wishes. Please visit our website to learn more. Eligibility
Hospice eligibility is determined when a terminally-ill patient’s attending physician certifies the patient has a limited life expectancy of six months or less, and the patient makes a decision to discontinue aggressive cure-oriented treatments and focus on comfort and quality of life. Iowa City Hospice is a not-for-profit, community-based provider, and no one who needs care is turned away. Services are paid through Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance and community financial support.
Services for bereaved individuals—support groups, educational programs, resources and referrals—are available to anyone who resides in Iowa City Hospice’s seven-county service area, regardless of whether the person who died was a hospice patient.Cost of Service
