Thank you for referring to CompassionCare Nevada
A hospice referral doesn’t have to come from a doctor or social worker. A family member, a friend or neighbor can make the first call to CompassionCare Hospice.
Before a patient is admitted, his or her physician must certify that the patient is medically appropriate for hospice. (CompassionCare will contact the physician for verification.)
A patient can remain in hospice as long as he or she meets the criteria established by Medicare/Medicaid or a private insurer. By law, the hospice organization must continue to provide care. You will always have the decision to start or terminate hospice care at your choosing.
Please contact your local CompassionCare Hospice to place the referral request with one of our specialized professionals.
