Home Health FAQ
Just as the name implies, home health care is the ability to provide services in the patient's home. Most experts agree that the home is the best environment for healing. Most people are unaware of the number of services we can provide in the home. Give us a call.
Patients can benefit from home health care by alleviating the need for extended stays in a hospital or a nursing home.
People are often amazed at the number of services that can be performed in the home. We can send nurses, home health aides, physical, speech and occupational therapists in the home. We can also coordinate respite care to allow caregivers a well deserved break.
Other services such as X-Rays, phlebotomy, medical equipment, and many other services can be delivered/provided without ever leaving home.
Home health care is covered by Medicare (either Part A or B), Medicaid and most private insurance. All Broward Home Health is a Medicare provider. Our services are provided at NO COST to the client.
Other insurers may have different criteria for services. You should consult your provider for more information. Ancillary services, such as DME or phlebotomy, may have copays or deductibles.
This is a very important area, especially when Medicare is the insurer. Medicare will cover the cost of home health care by a certified agency. In most cases, patients are under the care of a home health agency for a limited time. Patients sometimes become very used to having a person assist them with personal care duties and want to continue those services. However, Medicare ONLY covers services associated with the treatment of a condition. Once the patient's goals have been met, the patient is discharged from care. Patients may opt to continue receiving care at their own expense. This is usually referred to as, "custodial care" and it is not covered by Medicare.
Under Medicare, the patient can choose any home health agency that is certified by Medicare. If you are not satisfied with the staff or quality of care you are receiving, you should first try contacting the Agency Administrator and voice your concerns. If you are still not satisfied, you can change agencies with a few phone calls. Contact your Doctor and tell him about your request. In most cases, another agency can continue services the very next day.
In Florida, if you have a complaint, you can call the Agency Hotline at 888-419-3456.
