3. DOES MY INSURANCE COVER IN-HOME CARE?
Private duty home health care is generally paid for out of pocket. However, if the client has a long-term care policy, the policy holders would then be reimbursed a daily amount depending on the coverage they have selected. We accept most long-term care policies.
4. DOES MEDICARE COVER IN HOME-CARE?
Medicare does not cover non-medical or personal in-home care services. However, Medicare will pay for an aide if you require a skilled nursing or therapy service. Some clients pay for private duty in-home care and also have a Medicare certified agency to provide the skilled or therapy services needed. A prescription from a physician is needed to qualify for Medicare services.
