As a certified hospice volunteer and former Supervisor of Volunteer Services for a Medicare reimbursed hospice try contacting the National Hospice and Pallative Care Organization, located in Ohio, I think. They do have a website as well. Nonetheless, they are a member organization that tracks data and membership for national hospices/organizations. Note that most stats on any info for a certain year will be one year behind. You will probably have reliable data for 2003, but it may be awhile for year-end 2004 stats to be available. Also, some hospices may take Medicare but also will accept patients regardless of ability to pay--if that is what/why you may be asking. Some accept both and most insurance plans--while they don't advertise it--will pay for the hospice benefit. Just a FYI. Hope that helps.
