What is home healthcare?
Home health care is a vital part of our healthcare system today. Home health care provides a broad range of professional health care and support services in that patients home. Home health care is necessary when a person needs ongoing care that can not be provided easily by family and friends. Because care is provided in the home, the patient is able to remain in comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Who can receive home health care?
People of all ages with acute and chronic healthcare needs can receive home health services. Home healthcare is for persons who require healthcare from a professional or who needs supportive assistance in the home environments, all under the medical orders of their personal physician.
Will my insurance cover home healthcare?
If the care ordered by a patient’s physician is medically necessary and the patient meets certain coverage requirements, then Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances will pay for home healthcare services. Medicaid coverage varies, depending on the state in which the patient resides. Different private insurance carriers have different policies concerning home health coverage. Some patients may choose to pay out of pocket for expenses not covered.
Sunflower Home Health does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age in admission, treatment, or participation in its programs, services and activities, or in employment.
