Receive an Official Health Evaluation and Diagnosis
To admit yourself or a loved one into hospice care, you should first receive an official health evaluation from your physician that comes to the conclusion that you’re suffering from a terminal illness.
Contact White Dove Hospice
Once you’ve received such an evaluation and diagnosis, you must contact White Dove Hospice.
Once you do that, one of our staff members will ask you for information about you or your loved one’s current health condition. It is at this time that you should inform the White Dove Hospice staff on everything that they need to know about you or your loved one’s terminal illness, medications, and care requirements.
Once this informative call is over, the White Dove Hospice staff will likely get back in contact with you. At this time, the White Dove Hospice will also inform you of which services will best suit you or your loved one’s needs.
It’s also around this time that you’ll need to officially decide whether or not to receive hospice care at White Dove Hospice. If you or your loved one do decide to receive hospice care with us, you’ll receive an official hospice care start date.
Verify Your Insurance and Pay for Any Necessary Fees
Around this time you’ll need to verify insurance for hospice care coverage. At White Dove Hospice, Medicare Medical is the in-network insurance provider.
You can verify insurance at White Dove Hospice on the White Dove Hospice website, with a White Dove staff member over the phone or by email, or by verifying it in-person at the White Dove Hospice center.
