Medicare Pays 100% of Home Health Charges for Qualified Patients

January 22, 2015 in LifeCare Health Services

Did you know that Medicare pays 100% of allowable home health care charges for qualified patients? If you could use the help of a nurse or therapist, home health may be right for you.

 

To qualify for home health care, you must have a medical need for the skilled services of a nurse or therapist and meet Medicare’s definition of homebound. Homebound means that because of illness or injury, you need the aid of supportive devices such as wheelchairs, special transportation, or the assistance of another person in order to leave the home, or have a condition (such as CHF) that medically contraindicates leaving the home. You are normally unable to leave home, and doing so requires taxing effort. Home health patients are often temporarily homebound while they are recovering from injury or illness.

 

If you meet these qualifications, Medicare pays 100% of allowable charges. This means no co-pay, deductible, or other out-of-pocket expenses related to home health services.

 

We bring many services found in hospitals and facilities right to your living room. Our healthcare professionals include skilled nurses, physical therapists, and more. Our home health services can help prevent rehospitalization, reduce the need for urgent care, and accomplish improved health outcomes.
