Referring to Hillside
The clinical referral helps our treatment team determine if and where a client would be a good clinical fit in Hillside’s service array. The clinical referral is also instrumental in helping the admissions team advocate for the client with their insurance during the pre-authorization process to approve funding for treatment.
The information our team needs from the current treating provider includes:
- Diagnostic impressions
- Current symptoms
- History of treatment and medication
- Reasons that the provider is recommending a higher level of care at this time
This information can be in a written clinical summary letter, copies of recent clinical notes, or through the completion of the clinical referral form.
