Who Qualifies for Home Care under Medicare?
To qualify for home care under Medicare, a person must be homebound, under the care of a physician and in need of skilled services on an intermittent basis. A physician must establish and periodically review a patient's plan of care. Patients who may benefit from home care services include but are not limited to:
- Patients recovering from surgery or illness
- Patients with many long-term diseases, which include CHF, COPD and others who need skilled care to improve their condition
- Patients/caregivers who need education for medication management and disease processes
- Patients requiring wound therapy; including pressure ulcers, stasis ulcers and surgical wounds
- Patients requiring rehab therapy to overcome injuries or an illness
- Patients facing the end-stage of life in need of medical care and emotional support
Paying for Home Care Services
Medicare covers the cost associated with approved home health care services for qualifying beneficiaries. Most major medical insurance plans will reimburse all or part of the costs related to home care. The home health staff will conduct an assessment to determine if you qualify for home health care and if the services will be covered by your individual health plan. As a service to you, Citizens Baptist Home Care will file claims for you.
Although a physician referral is required to initiate services, the following individuals can help you make the necessary arrangements and provide further information: a hospital discharge planner, your physician's office staff, a medical social worker, or contact us at 256-761-4363 or 1-866-617-4363.
