BEWARE OF HOSPICE SOLICITATION
The Hospice Support Fund, based in Nashville and using a mail processing center in Merrifield, VA has been soliciting by mail in several areas in Virginia requesting donations "to bring end of life home hospice care to all Americans". This organization is not affiliated with the Virginia Association for Hospices & Palliative Care, nor is it associated with any licensed hospice in Virginia. As far as we can determine no hospice nor hospice patient has benefited from this organization.
VAHPC is pleased to announce an affiliation with HospicareRx, the pharmacy management company.
HospiCareRx not only partners with hospice agencies to effectively manage medication benefits for their patients but also participates in revenue sharing with VAHPC when our members become a HospiCareRx client. Visit their website
