Frequently Asked Questions

Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Home health care ordered by a doctor is typically covered by Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and other private insurance plans. Medicare Advantage and private plans may require people to use a provider who is in their network.

Medicare does not cover non-medical senior care or personal care when it is the only care required by a patient. Long-term care insurance may cover some of the cost of in-home care services. Veterans and their spouses may be able to use VA Aid and Attendance benefits to pay for home health care. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance.

Yes. If you or a loved one is interested in receiving home health care services, speak with your primary care physician or other health care provider. You can also talk to one of our nurses 24/7 at 682-428-9200 to find out if home health might be right for you.

Personal home care is often needed alongside home health services, and we can help coordinate the two levels of care. A limited number of your home care hours may be covered by Medicare while you’re receiving clinical in-home care, but it’s generally paid separately or covered by private insurance or another government program.

Skilled home health care is medical care provided by licensed nurses, nurse aides, or therapists. Support usually begins with a prescription from a doctor.

Home health visits can include medical assessments, wound care, IV therapy, and physical therapy. Nurses and aides can also maintain, or help you learn how to maintain feeding tubes, colostomy bags, oxygen, and other medical equipment. Visits can include fall prevention, education, and strategies to help older adults recover, stay independent, and reduce unplanned hospital visits.

Companion care or senior care is non-medical assistance at home. Sometimes older adults just need little extra help getting up in the morning, personal hygiene, household chores, or transportation to stay independent.

In most states, personal care aides can remind someone to take medications or help them self-administer medicines. They are typically not allowed to administer oral or injectable medications. Some states enable personal care aides with advanced training to add administer medications.

Medicare requires people to be homebound to receive home health benefits. Homebound status is based on a doctors evaluation. Homebound is defined as the inability to leave the home. Exceptions include: short and infrequent trips to the doctor, attending church, getting a haircut, etc.. where the patient does not drive to where they are going.
