Medi-Cal is the Medicaid health care program for the state of California. When utilizing the hospice benefit Medi-Cal typically covers the cost of room and board when a patient’s residence is a nursing facility. When a hospice appropriate patient is not yet eligible for Medicare benefits, Medi-Cal may step in as the primary payor source for all the hospice services.
