We provide the following clinical services:

Insurance Information

Choice Health at Home accepts all traditional Medicare plans, as well as several Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Humana, United Healthcare, and other insurance plans, depending on the carrier. More than anything, we want to help because we know insurance is a complicated system to navigate.

Home health services are 100% covered by traditional Medicare with no out-of-pocket expense to the patient. Medicare Replacement Plans may have an associated expense depending on the plan. Our financial counselor will help you determine if you will have any co-payments due for home health services. Usually, a home health care agency coordinates the services your doctor orders for you.​ Home health care services must be provided by a Medicare-certified home health care agency.

Specifically, Medicare covers eligible home health services like these:

  • Part-time or "intermittent" skilled nursing care
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech-language pathology services (speech therapy)
  • Medical social services
  • Part-time or intermittent home health aide services (personal hands-on care)

Eligibility for Home Health Services

A patient must meet the following 4 criteria as set forth by Medicare.gov:

Eligible recipients must be under the care of a physician. The physician must prescribe a plan of care involving medically necessary services for the treatment or maintenance of a health condition. This care is intended to be short-term, so the doctor is required to re-certify the plan of care every 60 days.

Eligible recipients must be certified by a doctor as homebound. This means it requires a considerable and taxing effort to leave home because of reliance on mobility aids such as a cane, wheelchair or walker, special transportation, or the assistance of another person to do so. An individual does not have to be bedridden to be considered homebound and can still qualify even if they are able to leave home for medical treatments, adult daycare, and short, infrequent nonmedical outings, such as religious services and family gatherings.

Eligible recipients must have a doctor’s certification of the need for at least one of the following services:

  • Intermittent skilled nursing care: Intermittent means part-time services that are needed “less than seven days per week or less than eight hours per day over a period of three weeks or less.” There are some exceptions in special circumstances, but Medicare generally will not cover additional care.
  • Skilled therapy services: These services can include physical therapy (PT), speech-language pathology (SLP), and occupational therapy (OT), and a qualified therapist must administer them. The services must be necessary to improve the patient’s condition in a reasonable and somewhat predictable period, create an initial maintenance program for the condition, or engage in a maintenance program safely and effectively with proper supervision and instruction.

Service Medicare Does Not Cover

Medicare doesn't pay for:

  • 24-hour-a-day care at home
  • Meals delivered to your home
  • Homemaker services (like shopping, cleaning, and laundry), when this is the only care you need
  • Custodial or personal care (like bathing, dressing, or using the bathroom), when this is the only care you need

At Choice Health at Home, we provide multiple types of care, including in-home care services. If you have questions or just need to discuss your options, we are here to help. Contact us online or call us directly at 855.485.8273. We look forward to giving assistance.
