Soulistic Hospice is a nonprofit hospice specializing in providing the highest quality of end of life care. We are locally owned and operated, faith-based, state licensed, Medicare certified, and also VA contracted.
Below are some of the more common hospice eligibility guidelines, also known as Local Coverage Determinations (LCD), that help physicians determine a prognosis of six months or less for some of the most common terminal conditions. Hospice eligibility can vary depending on many individual factors and co-morbidities. Please do not hesitate to call and speak to our Medical Director at (520) 398-2333 if you have any questions about whether one of your patients would qualify for hospice care.
As a medical professional, you cannot predict how soon your patient will transition, but you do know when a cure is not possible. Hospice emphasizes comfort and quality of life once an illness is incurable. Patients and families who are reluctant to use hospice are more likely to accept services when they have a conversation with their doctors about hospice care.
