Palliative care may be one of the least understood terms in the modern health care system. People often – and incorrectly – assume it is the same as hospice care. Palliative care is specialized assistance for people living with serious illness. It focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness – whatever the diagnosis – and it, ideally, begins at a much earlier stage. Regence has taken a leadership position in responding to the growing need for this key type of care. With Personalized Care Support, Regence offers its members a holistic solution when it’s most needed.
