Does my insurance pay for JHC HomeCare?
YES. Medicare, Medicaid, and most managed care insurances pay for home services. A few managed care insurances may require a co-pay or deductible. We will inform you of any out-of-pocket costs in advance.
What home services are covered by insurance?
Skilled Nursing (RN or LPN), Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Medical Social Work, and Certified Home Health Aide services.
Will my insurance pay for someone to help clean my house, run errands, etc?
Companion and homemaker services are provided by non-skilled providers. Insurance pays for the skilled services listed above. If you need more help around the home, our Medical Social Worker can help you find resources in the community. JHC PrivateCare provides these services and more, including around-the-clock care.
Do I have to meet certain criteria to qualify for home care services?
YES. In order to receive skilled services at home, your doctor must agree that you require medical care to be delivered in the home.
If you are insured by Medicare or a Medicare product, you must be Homebound (medical reasons make it difficult or impossible for you to leave home).
If you are insured by a non-Medicare product, JHC HomeCare will need to obtain authorization from your insurer prior to providing care. If you have questions about whether you or a loved one may be eligible for home services, our staff would be happy to provide more information.
How do I get skilled home services through JHC HomeCare?
Call JHC HomeCare and ask for the Intake Department. Our staff will need to gather some basic information and then we can do the rest.
