Cost of Care
The cost of home health care is covered by Medicare, most health insurance programs, various government programs, workers’ compensation, the Veterans’ Administration, or can be paid privately by the patient.
Medicare will pay for home health staff services with no cost to you unless you receive written notification from Medicare that your care is not covered. Should this occur, our staff will notify you, discuss your care needs, and obtain your written permission to bill you directly if you wish care to be continued. Medicare does not pay for intravenous (IV) medications.
If your coverage is through health insurance other than Medicare, the intake/insurance reimbursement nurse will contact the insurance company to verify benefits and obtain preauthorization, if required. You will be given a written estimate of any charges.
