PIP Pre-approvals

The regular business hours of the PIP are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  To assist caregivers (hospices, nursing homes, adult living facilities) with dispositions that may arise during non-business hours of the PIP, pre-approvals can be made with our office.

Pre-approval forms (see below) may be completed by the adult care facility for any patient, client or resident who appears to be a candidate for PIP.  Once forms have been submitted and approved by the PIP office, the removal service will be notified and will be able to assist with removals during non-business hours.

For cases that are not pre-approved, caregivers must contact a funeral home or a removal service for storage arrangements.

Pre-approval forms

Please select the appropriate set of forms and return to the PIP office (Fax: 305-545-2409).

Cases involving next-of-kin should complete:

  1. Pre-approval Checklist
  2. Decedent Information Form (Adult or Infant)
  3. Authorization for Cremation and Disposition
    (either written or verbal)


Cases involving no next-of-kin should complete:

  1. Pre-approval Checklist
  2. Cremation Authorization Form (either written or verbal – if there is a legal or personal representative)
All cases should include a copy of the facility’s Admission Face Sheet.
If you have any questions, please call Sandra Witty-Fortunato (305-545-2422).
