Benefits of Home Health Care

Quality of Life Improvements

Home health care allows patients to stay in a familiar environment, which can significantly improve their comfort and overall well-being. Personalized care plans ensure that patients receive the specific support they need.


Home health care is often more cost-effective than hospital or nursing home care, providing significant savings while delivering high-quality care.

Flexibility and Comfort

Receiving care at home offers flexibility and comfort that institutional settings cannot match. Patients can maintain their routines and enjoy the company of loved ones in their own space.

Medicare can cover durable medical equipment (DME) that is necessary for your medical condition. This includes items like wheelchairs, hospital beds, oxygen equipment, and walkers. To get coverage, your doctor must prescribe the equipment, and you must use a supplier that accepts Medicare.

Medicare covers part-time or intermittent home health care services. Typically, this means services are provided fewer than seven days a week or less than eight hours each day over a period of 21 days, unless there is a predictable end to that period.

No, Medicare generally does not allow you to receive both hospice care and home health care at the same time. Hospice care focuses on comfort for those with terminal illnesses, while home health care focuses on rehabilitation and medical treatment.

Home health aides covered by Medicare must work for a Medicare-certified home health agency. They typically help with personal care tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming. However, they do not provide skilled nursing care.

Medicare has expanded its coverage to include some telehealth services, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. This can include remote patient monitoring and virtual visits with health care providers to manage ongoing conditions.

For those who qualify, Medicare covers the full cost of home health care services. However, you may be responsible for 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for durable medical equipment. There may also be co-payments or additional costs if you require services or equipment that are not covered by Medicare.

If Medicare denies coverage for home health care services, you have the right to appeal. The first step is to read the denial notice carefully and follow the instructions for requesting an appeal. You will need to provide evidence, such as a letter from your doctor, explaining why the services are medically necessary.
