Patient Referrals

Patient referrals shouldn’t be an endless maze of paperwork, phone calls, and questions. At VNS Health, we make referring a patient to home, hospice, or behavioral health care easy — so you can get your patient the care they need as soon as possible.


Eligibility & Referral Criteria

Referrals for Home Care

Referrals for Hospice Care

Could your patient benefit from hospice care? As a patient nears the end of life, it can be tough to know when to refer to hospice. VNS Health can help you determine eligibility and how to get started on a referral.

Mental health is an essential part of overall health. From depression to anxiety to trauma and substance use, patients can face any number of mental health concerns. Our behavioral health teams offer in-home and community-based services to support older adults, children and families, and at-risk individuals.
