Home Care Services are covered by Medicare and other Private Insurance and the patient is homebound. Private Duty is typically covered by Private Pay, Auto Insurance or Workman’s Compensation Insurance.

In order to receive home health care services under Medicare, the patient must require skilled, intermittent nursing care, physical therapy, or speech therapy, have a physician’s order for home health care, and be essentially homebound. Medicare considers a person to be homebound if leaving the home would require a considerable and taxing effort and if s/he has a condition due to an illness or injury which restricts the ability to leave home except with the aid of devices such as crutches, canes, wheelchairs, walkers, special transportation, or assistance of another person. Homebound patients may leave their home if absences from the home are infrequent or for periods of relatively short duration, or for the purpose of receiving medical treatment.

Medicare will not pay if you need help with daily activities such as non-prescribed personal care, meal preparation, medication reminders, housekeeping and other typical senior care services. Insurance plans that cover these services are privately purchased such as long-term care insurance.
