Any individual can request home health services. Referrals may come through the hospital discharge planner, a social worker, physician, or nurse. Additionally, you or a family member can ask for an evaluation for home health care eligibility.
Medicare, medical insurance, private insurance, grants, and private pay cover home health services. A nurse or therapist will perform an evaluation visit to determine if you are eligible for services, as well as discuss your payment options.
Mercyhealth Home Health is nonprofit, state licensed and Medicare/Medicaid-certified.
