Hospice will cover the type of care (3X/wk by an aide, ~12 hrs/wk total) you have described for your MIL, but the size of the bill ($16,500) for 3.5 weeks suggests 24 hr home care from a personal aide. The description of the patients status " invalid with broken nose, neck and more " would indicate a bedridden individual who could not be left alone at all. This type of care is probably not going to be covered by Medicare or other insurance. Many severely ill people are cared for at home by the family with the addition of personal care not covered by insurance. This case may be one such case.
