Medicare

Medicare Home Health Benefits will pay for skilled nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and home health services under the following conditions:
  1. Patient must be homebound*
  2. Care must be medically necessary**
  3. Care must be part-time or intermittent
  4. The patient requires at least one skilled professional service, like a nurse, physical therapist, or speech therapist
  5. Care must be provided by a Medicare-Certified Home Care Agency
  6. Must have a signed Physicians' Order for requested service(s)
  7. Services must be delivered in the patient's primary place of residence
*Medicare Homebound Status Criteria: leaving the home would require a "considerable and taxing effort", leaving requires assistance from another person or special transportation, the patient can only leave for short periods of time, or the patient is temporarily homebound while recovering from surgery, serious illness, or trauma.

**Usually for conditions that are acute and serious, not chronic and stable.

Medicaid

Medicaid health insurance can help if you can't afford to pay some or all of your medical bills. It's available if you meet the financial eligibility requirements set by your state law. For the most part, Medicaid will cover the same services as the Medicare Home Health Benefits.

Private Insurance

Most private insurance policies have a Home Health benefit that includes some or all of the services provided under the Medicare and Medicaid Home Health Benefits. Each insurance company has specific coverage, co-pays, and eligibility requirements, but CareResource Hawaii will work with your insurance company to provide best possible plan.

Long term care insurance

Many long term care insurance policies will pay for private or personal care services, but certain requirements need to be met. The caring staff at CareResource Hawaii will help you determine whether home care qualifies as a benefit under your current plan.
