At Divinity Home Health Services in Thibodaux, our goal is to provide all patients with the best care possible regardless of ability to pay. It’s no secret that healthcare costs can take a serious toll on the average American family. By seeking treatment from a home health agency that is Medicare certified, clients can often reduce their out-of-pocket costs.
Divinity is a Medicare Certified home health care company. Unfortunately, not all home health care agencies are Medicare-certified. To be Medicare-certified, a health agency must agree to be paid by Medicare and accept only the amount of money that Medicare approves for its services. Additionally, Medicare-certified agencies must commit to covering the following services if deemed reasonable and necessary:
It’s important to note that Medicare doesn’t cover all the needs of home nursing patients. For example, Medicare doesn’t support the cost of 24/7 home heath care, or pay for meals to be delivered to patients’ homes. Additionally, Medicare may not provide for homemaker services or personal care when that is the only care needed or when not related to an individual’s care plan. Patients who require these services may need to pursue alternate methods of financing their care.
Private insurance differs from Medicare in that it depends on which insurances are in network with various home health agencies. If you choose to work with Divinity, we will contact your insurance provider to determine home health coverage and benefits.
