What are home health options that are available to your loved ones?

There are home health options available to everyone in our nation. You do not have to be a certain level of income to receive the best care out there. When deciding if home health is right for you or a loved one first you need to educate yourself. Home health care can be skilled or unskilled and is provided by nurses, therapists, social workers, or personal care aides. This care as dictated by medical insurance plans. Per traditional Medicare skilled home health care is covered at 100% EXCEPT if person has a Medicare Advantage plan which is one administered through a private insurance company and they may have a co-payment and/or deductible

Per Medicare guidelines, a physician’s order for the care is required, there must be a skilled need (something that requires the skills of a professional) & the person must be home bound which means they only leave the home for short, intermittent periods or for medical appointments or treatments that they can not get at home. Home care can also be non-skilled which means it does not require a professional and is provided by an aide level person. This would be for homemaking, bathing, meal prep, shopping, laundry, etc. This type care is NOT covered by medical insurance, but may be covered by long term care insurance, ESP, PASSPORT, etc., but must often is paid for out of pocket.
