Medicare

If the patient has Medicare, he/she can use the Home Health benefit if all the listed conditions are met:

  • The doctor must decide that the patient needs medical care at home, and makes a plan for this care.
  • The patient must need one or more of the following services.
    • Intermittent skilled nursing care
    • physical therapy
    • speech-language pathology
    • continued occupational therapy
  • The patient must be homebound or normally unable to leave home unassisted. To be homebound means that leaving home takes considerable effort. Patients may leave home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, such as a trip to attend religious services. A patient can still get home health care if he or she attends adult day care.
