Welcome to the Alabama Hospice and Palliative Care Organization

 AHPCO has been advocating for hospice in Alabama for more than 30 years.

 The Alabama Hospice and Palliative Care Organization was created to promote understanding of the hospice benefit provided by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance companies. Made up of hospices and palliative care programs throughout the state, AHPCO provides up-to-date and accurate information regarding end-of-life care.  The organization also works to improve public policy regarding end-of-life care by providing information to elected officials and decision makers. In addition we work to promote a better understanding of hospice and palliative care within our communities.

 AHPCO is a not-for-profit organization that advocates for better awareness of hospice and end-of-life care issues in the state. Our goal at AHPCO is to maintain the highest ethical standards and establish the organization as a grassroots political voice for dying patients and their families.
