At Help for Health Hospice, we believe patients have the right to dignity and respect, decision making, privacy, financial information, and quality of care.
Sometimes Help for Health Hospice is no longer a good healthcare fit for patients and patients may come off of or change hospice services for the following:
DISCHARGE: We will discharge patients in situations in which we determine hospice is no longer able to serve them or if the Hospice team determines that life expectancy has lengthened. A patient may voluntarily choose to leave the hospice program at any time. When choosing to leave the program, the hospice staff will assist patients and their families with a plan for care after discharge.
REVOCATION: If at any time a patient wishes to revoke hospice and return to traditional care, they may do so by signing a revocation form. The remaining benefits days in the current election period will be forfeit if/when a revocation form is signed. Hospice can be resumed at a later date if a patient and/or doctor determines it to be necessary.
TRANSFER: If a patient is on hospice and is relocating to another area, a transfer to another hospice service can be arranged and the benefit days will continue in the current election period.
Please contact Help for Health at 307-856-1206 if you have concerns or complaints about services you are receiving. Please review Help for Health's Notice of Privacy Practices pamphlet to learn more about ways in which we protect your privacy.
In 2008 Help for Health opened a standalone hospice home, built through efforts from dedicated volunteers and community contributions over several years. A county-wide 1% capital tax was passed. The hospice home is an eight bed facility that serves hospice patients 24/7. Help for Health also serve hospice patients in their own homes. We are Medicaid and Medicare certified and accept most private insurances. No one is denied services due to inability to pay.
