FAQ's

 

 

What is Home Health Care?

 

Home health care is a wide range of skilled health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is less expensive, more convenient than and usually just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility. 
 
 

Who is eligible?

 

  • Those who are insured by traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, Commercial Insurance and Private Pay.

 

  • For Medicare, and some insurance plans,  a patient who is considered “homebound”. Meaning it is difficult for them to leave their home and they do so infrequently and with the use of an assistive device and/or the assistance of a another person or specialized transportation.

 

  • A patient who has been referred by a physician or hospital, requiring home health care for intermittent skilled services such as nursing or therapy.

 

 

What is considered "skilled care"?

 

A type of health care given when you need skilled nursing or rehabilitation staff to manage, observe, and evaluate your care. Nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy are considered skilled care by Medicare.

 

Once a skilled need is established, a secondary discipline such as medical social worker, home health aide or occupational therapist may be involved in providing patient services. Medicare will NOT pay for personal care services in the absence of a skilled need.

 

 

How does it work? 

 

  • Ask your physician or discharge planner at the hospital to send a referral to PHS.

 

  • A registered nurse will come to your home and perform a comprehensive assessment to determine your needs.

 

  • Our professional staff will also talk to your doctor about your care, and keep your doctor updated about your progress.
