WHAT IS HOME CARE?
“Home Care” encompasses a wide range of health and social services. These services are delivered at home to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill persons in need of medical, nursing, social or therapeutic treatment and/of assistance with the essential activities of daily living. With physician orders for home health, anyone can refer a patient or family member to COMPLETE HOME HEALTH. The physician then supervises the individual care of each patient.
WHO PAYS FOR HOME CARE SERVICES?
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance companies provide payment for home health care. Medicare and Medicaid will cover all approved costs when a patient requires skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or a medical social worker, as long as the patient is considered homebound.
Who Provides Medical Supplied and Durable Medical Equipment
Many Medical Supplies are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. We coordinate the purchase or rental of durable medical equipment from the DME company of the patient’s choice at the patient’s request.
