The Kingfisher, calm and at peace,
nested upon water, quieter of restlessness.

Patient Relief Request

Patient Relief Program

The Patient Relief Program supports the benefits of hospice and palliative care. Its primary goal is to cover the cost for alternative options in symptom management for patients under the care of Halcyon Hospice or a rural hospice program along the Front Range of Colorado.

The Patient Relief Program identifies that many options for symptom management are not affordable or not inclusive with many insurance plans; consequently, individuals are left with limited options that may be ineffective for pain and suffering. Based on special requests from the Interdisciplinary Team caring for patients and families, the Patient Relief Program can assist with payment for special requests according to the need identified.

Qualifications:
1. Request must be made by a Halcyon Hospice and Palliative Care Team Member or referring Rural hospice program representative (Rural will be defined as a (HPSA) or a Health Professional Shortage Area).
2. Recipient of request is currently receiving Halcyon Hospice or Palliative Care Services in Colorado.
3. The patient and/or family are unable to cover the expense on their own. Patients request can not be provided by his/her personal resources or by immediate family.
