Becoming a member of FHPCA means being involved in our mission to assure excellence and access to hospice care, and advocate for the needs of those in the final phases of life. As Florida’s one and only hospice association, we work hard to ensure the preservation of the hospice Medicaid benefit, and have been successful for over 30 years in doing so.
We contribute our success to our dedicated and exceptional Provider Members (all employees of a FHPCA Provider Member are also members of FHPCA), who strive for quality hospice care in Florida.
