The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) monitors the care provided by hospice programs.
OIG reports that some Medicare beneficiaries were seriously harmed when hospices provided poor care or failed to take action in cases of abuse. Get more details here.
If you have any concerns about hospice care that a loved one is receiving, go to: Know Your Rights, Take Action for help in addressing these issues.
