Hospice Palliative Physician Eligibility Evaluation Services & Hospice Palliative Physician & Nurse Practitioner Consultation Services and Medicare at Home Programs for Palliative Consultation Services & Primary Home Care

Valor Health is accepting the challenge of extending services to an increasingly broad array of patients, family members and caregivers. Along with Hospice Care, this continuum of offering hospice palliative evaluations and consultations, and primary home care and non-hospice palliative consultations, reflects a natural progression of the home care philosophy and builds on the skills of experienced providers.

Valor HospiceCare Palliative Evaluation to Determine Hospice Eligibility

Valor HospiceCare offers as part of the Medicare Hospice Benefit, palliative medicine evaluaton services for all patients with serious illnesses. This is available 24/7 to assist community physicians, healthcare professionals and the community for patients in physician practices, private homes, adult care homes, group homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals. Upon request, a highly trained hospice physician, nurse practitioner or nurse will make a patient visit to assess complex symptoms and discuss findings and suggestions with the requesting physician. We assess the function and safety of your patients and their caregivers in their own home environment, including adherence to your plan of care, medication regimens, mobility and falls risk, among other areas. Our goal is to complement your plan of care by ensuring that your patients with serious chronic illnesses and/or physical/mental limitations have access to resources and conditions needed for them to succeed at home.

These evaluations are available for all patients, regardless of age, and are not limited to those patients considered hospice-appropriate, including:

  • Diagnosis and prognosis discussions to determine hospice eligibility.
  • Pain and symptom management consultations.
  • Hospital-to-Home support services to lower hospital and skilled nursing facility readmissions.
  • Developing goals of care based on a holistic attitude towards care.
  • Preparation and management of the dying process.
  • Advance care planning.
  • Issues with other aspects of care that affect quality of life.
  • Senior placement services.

Paying for Care

Pre-hospice evaluations by physicians and nurse practitioners are covered by Medicare Part A, Medicaid (AHCCCS) and with prior approval, many private commercial insurance companies. If appropriate, we will bill secondary insurance for the co-pay. We have also partnered with local and national commercial insurance firms to provide services for new programs that follow Medicare Advantage guidelines. Please contact us for eligibility. For those with private insurance, we will verify benefits and inform the patient/guardian of any responsbility for charges. Please contact us at 877.615.3996 for free patient evaluations today.
