What is home health care?

Who's eligible for home health care?
Firstly, Medicare must be the providing health insurance coverage, which is the only coverage we can accept at the moment. A patient must be homebound, meaning it is physician recommended to stay home due to condition. It can also mean that leaving the home requires a great deal of difficulty and or requires some special assistance in transportation. A physician will need to sign off a plan of care certifying the need for nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc...
What is the cost?
By possessing Medicare and qualifying for eligibility, the cost is ZERO to you.
Will the primary physician need to be changed?
No. Your primary physician will go on as before and remain intact. We are required, however, to have a physician visit our patients in order to prescribe treatment. If you feel more comfortable and at ease with your own primary doctor, we will communicate with he/she to schedule a visit and prescribe the plan of care. If it makes no difference, we have our own home physician who will visit and start the plan of care.
