What is Home Health Care?
Home health care consists of medical care provided in the patient’s home through licensed, certified agencies such as Green County Home Health Care.
Services are provided by registered nurses, certified aides, and registered therapists under a written plan of care approved by your personal physician.
After receiving your physician’s order, a home health registered nurse will contact you and come to your home. The nurse will evaluate your consideration and start your course of treatment. Your treatment will be adjusted to meet your changing needs by coordinating all changes with your physician. When you are better and no longer need home health services, your home health care will be discontinued.
Home health care was created by Medicare, specifically to provide medical care in the home for patients who have difficulty leaving their home.
Medicare planners knew that patients will recover faster when receiving care in their home because they are not required to undergo the stress and exposure of repeat trips to a medical facility.
Who is Eligible to Receive Home Health Care?
Medicare will pay for 100% of home health services for a qualified Medicare beneficiary.
- To qualify a patient must: Be confined to the home except for infrequent or short absences or trips for medical care. The patient generally has a condition due to an illness or an injury, which restricts their ability to leave their place or residence without the assistance of another person. This does NOT mean that a patient has to be Bed Bound!
- Require either skilled nursing services, or physical, occupational or speech therapy services. Click Here to learn more
