Paying For In-Home Care

We are a private company that does not accept any type of Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement for our services.  We accept the following forms as payment for our services:

 

  • Private/Family Pay
  • Automobile Insurance
  • Health Savings / Flexible Savings Account Funds
  • Reverse Mortgage Funds

 

  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Worker's Compensation Insurance
  • Veteran's Befefits Program

 

 

Outside help paying for in-home care services is limited and usually covers only short-term home health care needs. To be eligible for Medicare or Medicaid payment, an agency must meet certain federal standards and provide skilled nursing services. That means these programs do not pay for personal care or homemaker services alone. To be eligible for coverage under the programs you must be homebound and under a doctor's care.
