  1. The Medicare Hospice Benefit : ten years of federal policy for the terminally ill.

    Article - En anglais

    The Medicare Hospice Benefit has served terminally ill persons and their families since 1983.

    The political and social development of this policy combined both humanitarian and cost-saving strategies.
