We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance plans that cover physician-ordered home health care services. Our dedicated staff will collaborate with your insurance provider to ensure you have a clear understanding of the coverage available for your specific care needs. We are committed to assisting you in accessing the care you deserve.
Eligibility and Participation
For Medicare and numerous insurance providers, meeting homebound guidelines is a requirement. Homebound status indicates that your medical condition makes leaving home challenging, requiring considerable effort. This status does not imply a complete inability to leave your residence; infrequent and energy-taxing outings still qualify. Our expert home health team is adept at assessing and determining your homebound status. Our services are tailored to patients with recurring nursing or therapy needs as their primary requirement for care. This care is provided intermittently, with our professionals visiting periodically to bolster your independence.
