Why Homecare & Not Out-Patient Therapy?

  • Homecare is covered 100% by Medicare. Patients attending out-patient pay a 20% co-pay each visit and have a reimbursement cap of $1860 for the year. Homecare visits are not capped and are unlimited provided the patient’s condition is improving.
  • Wraps and bandages are provided under homecare; these items are not covered if patient is being treated as an out-patient.
  • Transportation is not needed for homecare; patients are not forced to drive for treatment with awkward bracing, bandages or devices.
  • Therapy is done in your patient’s home allowing them to be more at ease.
  • A registered nurse oversees vital signs, medication regime and total care.
  • Home health aides are available to assist with bathing and showering.
  • Your patient will receive an Individualized Plan of Care and Treatment. Treatments will be at least fifty minutes on a one to one basis. Out-patient therapy books patients every fifteen minutes and often treats numerous patients concurrently.
  • You the physician can bill for signing the homecare certification, recertification or care plan oversight.
