  • Many Americans are unaware that more than 50,000 veterans die each month; that's roughly 28 percent of all deaths in the United States. Nearly 40 percent of enrolled veterans live in areas that are considered rural, where community hospices and VA palliative care programs are often not readily available. On any given night, more than 200,000 veterans are without shelter and lack basic healthcare. Ensuring that all veterans receive compassionate, quality care at the end-of-life is a priority of NHPCO and the Department of Veterans Affairs Hospice and Palliative Care Program.

    "This grant program will help us learn from care providers who are currently engaged in veteran partnerships and will offer some best practices to help other end-of-life care providers learn how to reach rural and homeless veterans in need of hospice and palliative care services," commented J. Donald Schumacher, NHPCO president and CEO.

    Hospice care is part of the basic eligibility package for veterans enrolled in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). Hospice services also are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, most managed care organizations, private insurance plans, and HMOs. However, like majority of the American public, most veterans don't know that these options exist.

    Information for hospices about providing care to veterans is available at www.nhpco.org/veterans.

    For more information on hospice care, please visit NHPCO's Caring Connections at www.caringinfo.org or call the HelpLine at 800-658-8898.
