For Healthcare Providers


Does Your Patient Qualify for Home Health Services?

Many older adults prefer to get their healthcare at home. Mission Healthcare follows Medicare criteria for admission to our services. Home health services are available to individuals who meet the following guidelines; if the patient does not meet admission criteria, the patient may be referred to an alternate service and the physician will be notified.

  • Patient receives services under a plan of care established and reviewed by a physician.
  • A doctor must certify that you need intermittent skilled nursing care (other than drawing blood), physical therapy, speech-language pathology, AND/OR continued occupational therapy services.
  • Patient must be confined to the home and a doctor must certify that the patient is homebound.
  • Learn more about home health eligibility here.

Does Your Patient Qualify for Hospice Care?

Timely and appropriate identification of hospice-eligible patients increases the likelihood that the patient and family will benefit from compassionate, end-of-life care. In order to begin hospice care, patients must meet the hospice eligibility requirements established by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. For a patient eligible for hospice, consider the following guidelines:

  • The patient is terminally ill with a medical prognosis of 6 months or less to live if the illness runs its normal course
  • The patient accepts comfort care instead of care to cure the illness
  • The patient signs a statement to document choosing hospice instead of curative care
  • Learn more about hospice eligibility here.
