Who Is Eligible For Home Health Services?

To qualify for Medicare home health coverage, a physician must order the care for you, based on your need for skilled healthcare services. In order to qualify, leaving the home must be a taxing effort, done infrequently and for short periods of time. In addition to Medicare, a number of private insurance companies include home care coverage.

Who Pays For Home Care?

Hillcrest Regional Home Health service accepts Medicare. Medicare pays for specific services necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of an illness or injury for persons age 65 and over or individuals who have been deemed disabled.

Private insurance plans recognize home care as a beneficial alternative to prolonged hospitalization or nursing home care. Check with your plan administrator to determine any available coverage.
