Certainly. Patients have the right to revoke hospice services if they wish to pursue other treatment options. A patient may also be discharged if his or her condition improves or does not decline as expected, and can be readmitted later if he or she still qualifies. Also, a patient who lives longer than the physician’s prognosis – studies show that patients benefiting from the personalized supportive care of hospice often live longer than those who do not use hospice services – may be recertified and can continue hospice care as long as they qualify.
