Sage Hospice takes great pride in going above and beyond for our patients and staff. We exceed Medicare requirements and sometimes pay for our patients’ needs that aren’t a recognized medical issue and aren’t covered by Medicare or other insurance.
For example, a number of our patients do not have enough food, clothing, or money to pay their bills. Medicare and other insurance do not reimburse for these basic requirements.
So when we can, with donations like yours, we cover these up to Medicare-allowed limits.
In addition, we might use a portion of your donation to support other charitable opportunities. For example, we associate with a number of charities and foundations that support the elderly. So again when we can, with donations like yours, we will give gifts to these and other organizations.
