The Cost of Home Health Care May Not Be What You Think

Find Out How Our Home Health Care Services Help You Save While You Receive Exceptional Care

Home health care, covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance, is a highly effective, convenient way to get the expertise and skill of a healthcare team right in your home. The comprehensive services that home health care offers can also help you save money on medical expenses in the long run.

However, you can’t choose the first home health care agency that crosses your mind and expect to get excellent care. To reap all the benefits and savings of home health care, you need a provider with the right qualifications and a talented team of medical professionals.

In your community, the most trusted home health care team is Phoenix Home Care & Hospice. We provide home health care with long-lasting value for those who qualify for this service.

What You Need to Know About the Cost of Home Health Care

Medicare and Medicaid cover home health care services for part-time or intermittent skilled services. Private insurance also covers home health care, but it is important to check with your insurance provider for clarification on your benefits.

To receive insurance coverage for this service, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. You are homebound:You are considered homebound if you are not advised to leave home because of your medical condition, or you struggle to leave home without support, such as a wheelchair, walker, crutches, or even another person.
  2. Doctor’s orders: A certified medical provider must provide a written order for these services.

When you meet these eligibility requirements, you have a choice to make about additional savings: deciding on a leading, Medicare-qualified provider.

Choosing the Right Team Adds Value to Your Home Health Care Services

If you don’t have a home health care agency in mind to deliver services, your doctor may select one for you.

However, it is ultimately your choice. You can ask for Phoenix Home Care & Hospice by name. We are Medicare-qualified and prepared to deliver the skilled services you need to heal at home.

Based on your specific orders and authorizations, our team delivers complete, coordinated home health care, including:

  • Assessment and observation of your condition.
  • Skilled nursing.
  • Medical social work to help you cope with your illness or access additional resources to support your recovery.
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy, if ordered.

Although our goal is to help with your immediate medical needs, these services also create additional value, so that you don’t end up with potentially avoidable medical costs down the road.

Limit Potential Medical Costs with Our Home Health Care Services

Independent research organizations report that home health care agencies help reduce emergency room visits and costly rehospitalization. A hospital stay costs upwards of $2,500 per day. In comparison, home health care costs 85% less on average. Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare states that home health improves your mobility and ability to perform self-care, which may help you avoid a nursing facility and prevent further medical expenses.

Phoenix’s thorough approach aligns with the research on the cost-effectiveness and empowerment that home health care provides:

  • Your entire health care team shares information with each other through an RN case manager. This effective communication helps create optimal conditions for your recovery.
  • Your home health care nurse can help you establish a routine for taking medications and operating medical devices or equipment you require for your condition. This will encourage independence and help you take better care of yourself.
  • You can continue to practice skills and exercises you learned during speech, occupational, or physical therapy sessions, so you may not have to rely on these skilled disciplines in the future.
  • Knowing that you have support, encouragement, check-ins, and excellent care to ensure your health is priceless.
