The Referral Process

Cumberland Hospital treats children ages 2-22 with a medical diagnosis complicated by behavioral or psychological concerns. We work with children living with chronic illness, neurobehavioral issues and traumatic brain injuries.

For a child to be considered for admission to Cumberland Hospital, the following must be submitted to our admissions team:

  • A letter of medical necessity from a treating physician, which includes the following:
    • A statement referring the patient to Cumberland Hospital
    • Diagnoses (both medical and behavioral)
    • Treatments that have been tried prior to referral as well as outcomes
    • Why the patient needs to be admitted to Cumberland Hospital
  • Six months of medical and behavioral health information
  • Copy of most recent IEP and psychological evaluation if applicable

Once this information is received, we obtain clinical approval from our medical director and benefits approval through the insurance provider.

Insurance Coverage

We accept a wide variety of insurance plans and work with all insurance companies including Medicaid, Tricare and Commercial Insurance. While we work continuously with in-network providers so patients can stay focused on their progress, patients can be denied admission due to lack of medical necessity or out of network benefits.
