Eligibility for Home Health ServicesA 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 non-medical 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.
