Hospice Care is the percentage of Medicare decedents aged 65 years and older enrolled in hospice care in the last six months of life after a diagnosis of one of nine chronic conditions with a high probability of death. The senior ranks are based on 2014 data from The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. The percentage of Medicare decedents aged 65 and older enrolled in hospice care in the last six months of life varies from 30.7% in North Dakota to 65.8% in Arizona. Nationally, 52.0% of Medicare decedents were enrolled in hospice care in the last six months of life.
