Many Health care treatments once offered only in a hospital or doctor’s office are now available at home. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care provided in a hospital or nursing facility.


 Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. Best of all, Medicare pays 100% of the cost for certain home health care services if you meet certain eligibility criteria and the services are considered reasonable and necessary.  


If you have Medicare, you can use your home health benefits if you meet the following conditions: 

> You are under the care of a doctor and your plan of care is reviewed regularly.

>Your doctor certifies that you need, one or more of the following:

Intermittent skilled nursing care, Physical therapy, Occupational therapy, or Speech-language pathology services

>You must be homebound. To be homebound means the following:
Medically, leaving your home isn’t recommended, or your condition keeps you from leaving home without help (such as using a wheelchair or walker, needing special transportation, or assistance from another person), or leaving home takes a considerable and taxing effort. Leaving the home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, such as attending religious services is permitted.
