For patients receiving care in the hospital, your attending physician can request a palliative consultation. One of our specially trained physicians or nurse practitioners will meet with you and your loved ones to help you make important choices about your care. Then they will work with your physician to develop the best treatment plan.
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance cover the cost of Pemi-Baker Palliative Consultants services. A co-payment may apply. However, no one is ever denied care based on an inability to pay.
