Who is Eligible?
To qualify for home health benefits, you must be under the care of a physician.
Your physician must certify that:
  • You need medical care at home 
  • You need skilled care from nursing or physical, occupational, or speech therapy 
  • You are Homebound 
  • A face to face visit is performed with you within 90 days prior to starting home care or within 30 days after you start home care service. 
What is Homebound?
Most insurance companies require homebound status.  Homebound means that because of an illness or injury, it is very difficult for you to leave home except for infrequent, short periods of time. This may mean that you need someone else to assist you to leave home or you need the use of crutches, cane, wheelchair or walker. You may also be considered homebound if your doctor determines that leaving home is medically contraindicated (ill advised). (For example: after surgery) You can leave as often as you need for medical treatment; such as visits with your physician, dentist, etc. It is also allowed for the occasional trip to the barber/beauty salon, to attend church, or for special family events, like a wedding.
