Admissions Process

Comprehensive Care Planning

When a patient is admitted to Forest View, the patient and/or the family meets with a team of therapists, nurses, and social workers to develop their individualized Comprehensive Care Plan, which coordinates and guides all of the facets of each patient's treatment throughout their stay.

Using an interdisciplinary approach, our Continuing Care Program continues to make sure that each individual receives the personalized care he or she needs and meets their goals of healing and recovery.

Discharge planning is part of this process, and begins prior to the patient’s arrival at Forest View, We make sure that when discharged, each patient is educated and fully prepared for the level of care he or she will be receiving.

We also work with insurance companies and medical equipment suppliers to help patients get the Durable Medical Equipment they will need when they get home.

Payment Methods

We accept private-pay and participate in all third-party payment programs including Medicare and Medicaid, and participate with most major managed care organizations and HMO’s.

Arrangements can always be made with any HMO at your request, subject to the HMO eligibility requirements. Our financial assistance office will gladly consult with potential applicants, and assist with the preparation and submission of HMO and Medicaid applications.

We assist in obtaining HMO approval, maintaining approval, sending updates to the HMO, and in general, dealing with all aspects of the HMO.
