"Palliative care along with standard treatments may prolong life"
What are the benefits? Palliative Care is intended to relieve symptoms associated to chronic illnesses, such as: cancer, cardiac disease, respiratory disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer's and other dementias, AIDS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neurological disorders.
Palliative Care can be considered at anytime during the course of chronic illness and treatment regimens can range from conservative to aggressive/curative.
This program may be right for you if you are experiencing pain, stress and other symptoms due to a serious illness. With UHC, you can expect to have more control over your care in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere (such as your home) as a means to reduce stress and anxiety.
Most insurance plans cover all or part of palliative care treatment. To learn more about this program, please contact us at: (800) 200-1020.
