How do I know if I qualify for these services?

Medicare has established guidelines to help patients determin if they qualify for home care services. Regardless of whether you're over 65 or not, their qualification criteria can be helpful in determining if you need home care services. Those needing home care services should be:
  • Confined to home.
  • Under the care of a physician.
  • Receiving services under a plan of care established and periodically reviewed by a physician.
  • In need of skilled nursing care on an intermittent basis, physical therapy, speech-language pathology or have continuing need for occupational therapy.

Obviously, you may have more specific questions than those presented here. If so, we suggest that you speak with your physican or one of our representatives.
