Hospice Eligibility Criteria

Helpful information for you.

In order to be certified for hospice care, patients must meet the hospice eligibility requirement established by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. While no specific set of symptoms is required when qualifying for hospice, these guidelines assist Appalachian Hospice Care staff in determining if a patients condition is currently, or will soon be, appropriate for admission to hospice care.

If you believe you or a loved one could qualify for hospice services, or if you would like to learn more, follow the instructions on our Make a Referral page.
