Eligibility for Home Health Services
To meet the requirements of Medicare and other insurance sources, patients must be considered homebound to receive home health services. This means there should be a normal inability to leave home, and leaving home would be difficult and take considerable effort. The patient may be considered homebound if the absences from the home are infrequent or for periods of relatively short duration, or attributable to the need for health care treatment.
Hospice care provides end-of-life care when the patient’s condition is considered terminal and the patient is no longer receiving curative treatment. A terminal diagnosis is defined as the patient having six months or less to live if the condition runs its normal course. The hospice team works with patients to manage pain and symptoms so that their remaining time may be spent in peace and dignity.
