Guidelines for Referral
Hospice of Chesterfield County serves residents of Chesterfield and Marlboro counties. Family, friends, physicians or other healthcare agencies can make referrals. Admission to Hospice is based upon the patient’s needs and the recommendation of the patient’s physician. Patients appropriate for Hospice care should meet the following criteria: have a terminal illness, seeking care that is based on comfort rather than cure (also known as palliative care), have a responsible caregiver or agree to develop an alternative plan of care consistent with the patient's safety and needs, and agree to accept Hospice services. On admission, our referral liaison will visit the patient and family to discuss Hospice services, assess needs and initiate a plan of care.
Hospice of Chesterfield County admits patients to the hospice program based on need and regardless of their ability or inability to pay. Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies cover hospice services. The VA has a Hospice benefit available for their patients. Services prescribed by a VA physician require authorization from the VA Community Health Nurse Coordinator, who will contact Hospice with the appropriate information. Charitable donations allow us to provide Hospice services to patients without a payment source.
