End of Life Care

End of Life (EOL) care are the care options available to members who have an advanced illness. EOL care focuses on comfort, dignity, and quality of life. The goal is to provide physical and emotional help. You decide what the best option is for you and your family. There is no right choice. EOL care services include advanced care planning, palliative care, and hospice services.

Step by Step Advance Care Planning

What do you need for Advance Care Planning?

  • Make a visit to your provider.
    • Talk about the care you want to get if you cannot speak for yourself.
    • Your family or friend can attend your visit.
    • At the visit, your provider will explain your illness and what your options are.
