What is Home Health

What is Home Health
At its basic level, "home health care" means exactly what it sounds like - medical care provided in a patient's home.
Home health care can include broad care given by skilled medical professionals, including skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Home health care can also include skilled, non-medical care, such as medical social services.

What Medicare Will Pay For

Medicare Part A pays 100% of the cost of your covered home health care, and there is no limit on the number of visits to your home for which Medicare will pay. Medicare will also pay for the initial evaluation by a home care agency, if prescribed by your physician, to determine whether you are a good candidate for home care. (Note that Medicare Part A only pas for home health care that follows a prior three-day hospital stay. Otherwise Medicare Part B (medical insurance) pays for home health services.)

Medicare will pay for 100% of the following services related to home health care:
• part-time skilled nursing care-usually two to three visits per week in a plan certified by a physician
• physical therapy
• speech therapy, and/or
• occupational therapy.

If you are receiving home health care for one of the above, Medicare can also pay for:
• personal care by part-time home health aides
• medical social services, and
• medical supplies and equipment provided by the agency, such as a hospital bed, a walker, or respiratory equipment.
Who Needs It?

Who Needs It?

Patients who return home after surgery, and need care, supervision or assistance.

Patients who have complex treatments that require use of medical equipment and/or medication monitoring.

Patients who, are recovering from accidents or injuries, whose caregiver can manage them - if they know an experienced healthcare worker will be there when needed.
