Our agency will bill the patient’s insurance source directly. The patient or responsible party will receive a bill only when a portion of a bill is not paid by insurance (e.g. deductibles and co-insurance payments). Home health care costs qualify as medical expenses and are tax-deductible, within certain limits, from federal income tax.
To Qualify for Our Home Health Care
- You must require nursing or rehabilitation services,
- You must be homebound,
- You must have the service ordered by your physician.
If you have Medicare insurance, you must be homebound to qualify for our services. This means that it is difficult and taxing for you to leave your home and that you need assistance to do so. Skilled home care services are covered by most insurance.
