Exploring Your Options
Payment is something to consider early when arranging for home health care. CareGivers will help you determine which payment options would best suit your needs. We will also assist with any questions about Medicare or Medicaid eligibility, and refer you to the proper organization to help you further. Whenever possible, we will help with the completion of all paperwork required for third party reimbursement.
- Private Insurance: Many private insurance carriers offer home health care services as a benefit. CareGivers maintains all the required documentation and will bill direct to the insurance carrier.
- Medicare: Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people age 65 or older and certain disabled people under 65. It covers the home health services of nurses, therapists, social workers and home health aides. A physician must provide written orders for care to the providing agency.
- Medicaid: Medicaid is the medical assistance program for low-income people of all ages who are unable to pay for care and who meet the eligibility guidelines. It is financed by federal, state and local funds, and the services covered are set by federal and state law.
- Private Pay (Out of Pocket): If no third party paid options are available, the client pays for home health care services directly. We offer a variety of payment plans to meet your needs.
