As we plan and coordinate your health care, client and family participation is very important. It is essential that there is a willing and able client or caregiver to be responsible for continual care between visits. Qualified medical personnel will visit and assess your needs, and together we will discuss the services and the plan that would benefit you most.
We accept payment for services from Medicare, Medicaid, insurances, and private pay. If you are an eligible beneficiary for Medicare, there is no cost to you for most services. Some insurers may require pre-authorization and may limit the number and type of home visits we can provide.
Any charges for services not covered under Titles XVIII and XIX of the Social Security Act or non-reimbursable charges will be discussed with you before these services are provided. If known, we will be certain to inform you and your family, caregiver, or guardian of all charges and methods of payment prior to or during admission. Medicare can pay for home health visits only if ALL of the following requirements are met:
- The care you need includes part-time skilled care, physical, occupational, or speech therapy.
- You are confined to your home (homebound). (See explanation here.)
- A doctor determines you need home health care and sets up a plan for you.
- The home health agency providing services is participating in Medicare.
Medicare does not cover general household services, meal preparation, shopping, or other home care services furnished mainly to assist in meeting family or domestic needs.
