Home Health Charges

We accept payment for services from Medicare, Medicaid, workers’ compensation, private insurance or private pay. Some insurers may limit the number and type of home care visits that they will pay for and may require pre certification and/or copayments. We will inform you, your family, your caregiver or representative of all charges and methods of payment before or upon admission.
The following is required for Medicare to pay for your home health care services:
1. You are homebound as certified by a physician. This means that, due to your illness or injury, leaving home is either contraindicated or requires the aid of assistance devices, special transportation or assistance from another person. In addition, a normal inability to leave your home must exist, and leaving your home takes a considerable and taxing effort. You can still be considered homebound if your absences are infrequent or of relatively short duration.
2. You have had a recent illness or injury (or worsening of a condition) which requires Skilled Nursing Care on the intermittent basis (other than solely venipunctures) or Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology or have a continuing need for Occupational Therapy.
3. You are an eligible Medicare beneficiary under the care of a physician or non-physician practitioner who has seen you for the condition for which home health services are being ordered and provided by the agency.
4. Care is provided on an intermittent basis. This means Medicare will not pay for home health staff to stay with you for an extended period of time. We will only visit you for the length of time it takes to provide the specific treatment ordered by your physician.
