Is home care & hospice affordable?
Home Health and Hospice offer an affordable way to receive medical care at home. Many who access these benefits are over the age of 65 and are entitled to Medicare benefits which cover 100 percent of the cost of services and associated medication and supply costs. Medicaid and most commercial insurances also provide home health and hospice coverage.
If I start Home Health or Hospice do I have to give up my own physician?
Often, when patients elect home health or hospice it is their primary physician who authorizes, coordinates and follows their care from start to finish. Your agency should work closely with the physician of your choice as they provide care. If the patient does not have a primary care physician and needs to be seen by a doctor the Home Health and Hospice agency has Medical Directors who can visit the patient. Otherwise, recommendations can be made and the agency can assist the patient in visiting another physician of their choice.
