Q. What is the difference between home health care and private duty personal care?
When a person receives home health services, their doctor has prescribed Medicare certified services that are delivered in their own home. The services are provided to people recovering from serious illness or injury and who are considered “home bound” while also meeting other criteria as outlined by Medicare. Home health care services include skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language pathology (speech therapy).
Services commonly referred to as personal care or private duty care are not covered by Medicare and do not require a physician prescribe the services. Some private insurances pay for these services which are based on individual needs. Private duty personal care services can include skilled nursing services, home management, memory care, and companion home care. You choose how much or how often these services are provided.
Q. Will Medicare pay for my home health services?
Medicare pays 100 percent of home health costs for those who are eligible Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for home health services. Your home health care must be medically necessary, must be ordered by your physician and you must be considered “home bound.” Most private pay insurances will also pay for home health services when certain criteria are met.
Q. Will my insurance pay for private duty personal care services?
Long-term care insurances, governmental programs, private insurances, and self-pay are among the ways home care services or private duty services can be paid.
Q. Are your nursing assistants certified?
Yes. Once they have completed training, certified nursing assistants must pass a CNA certification examination. Care Partners @ Home uses certified nursing assistants who have passed state and federal background checks.
