Who Is Eligible for Home Health Services?

Home care is available to individuals of all ages with various health conditions. However, the need for home care is typically triggered by one of the following:

Being released from the hospital following a sudden event such as a heart attack, stroke or injury.
An ongoing health issue that requires a greater level of care than you currently have available to you at home.

Under Medicare, candidates for home health care must:

Have Medicare Part A or B;
Be homebound – leaving home must require a considerable and taxing effort;
Require skilled nursing services or skilled therapy services.
Get services from a Medicare certified home health agency (HHA); and
Get a doctor’s plan of care.

As long as patients meet these eligibility requirements, they may continue to receive home health benefits. Home health care need not be rehabilitative or have a specified end date. Patients with chronic or terminal conditions, without specific diagnoses, or without recent hospital discharges can still qualify if they need skilled care. For example, a person with multiple sclerosis who requires skilled maintenance therapy indefinitely can make continuous use of the Medicare home health benefit.

THE BEST WAY TO KNOW if you or your loved one is eligible for home health services is to call us at the location of your choice.
