Hospice participation has grown at a dramatic rate, especially among those involved with Medicare. According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), in 2012, an estimated 1.6 million patients received hospice care each year.

This number is expected to increase as the population ages and health care costs rise.
