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.
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 skilled services. 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?
Obtaining our services is easy. You can contact us directly or a referral can be made by your physician, hospital staff, skilled nursing facility, community agency, and/or a family member. Our staff will facilitate coordination with your primary care physician to ensure that transitions of care go smoothly. A nurse is always available to meet with you and evaluate your needs.
