ABSTRACT
This article emphasizes the need for open access hospice care programs in the U.S. that allow patients to continue using advanced medical treatments to make the quality of the end of life better. According to the author, the limited budget allocated by Medicare makes it impossible for hospice programs to offer terminally ill patients advanced medical care. Open access is expected to give hospice and end of life patients a chance to make the last days of their lives more comfortable.
