It is important to do your research and look at all of your options and expenses that are included for in-home healthcare. Some people think that they will not be covered by Medicare, however, it is important to look into the details and see how much they will cover. Visiting www.medicare.gov or calling 1-800-MEDICARE to get more information is necessary when weighing your home care options. According to the Medicare website, a patient can be qualified for home services if your doctor has met with you and created a plan for your care that regularly includes the specific services involved with in-home healthcare. Your doctor must verify that you need at home services like occupational therapy and other services that require an at home nurse, as well as your doctor must certify that you are home bound, but only require part time assistance.
