HOW DO WE PAY FOR SERVICES?
Home Care is NOT covered by Medicare. This is important to realize because these services are generally covered by private pay. Medicare pays for Home Healthcare which is a temporary service that provides skilled services like nursing oversight and therapies. Home Care is traditionally activities of daily living oriented and is not covered by Medicare.
Long term care insurance will pay for Home Care, so if there is a long term care insurance plan, let's discuss how to apply this and meet the requirements.
Skilled services for those under 65 can be covered by insurance, and we encourage you to call and determine our ability to supply services through your insurance.
