Cost of Home Health

Welcome to Home Health House Call.

Today I am going to answer the question-- How much does home health cost?
The answer is-- it depends on your insurance.
Medicare-- for instance-- pays at 100% -that’s right- no out of pocket expense to you.
Medicaid also pays at 100%- for up to 50 visits in a calendar year.
Private insurance is a little different.
It depends on whether or not your home health is in network with your insurance company.
You can find out what your co-pay would be- simply by calling the home health company-- of your choice and asking them to check your benefits.
They should be able to tell you up front what you would owe.
So you see-- home health is quite affordable
and in some cases-- costing you nothing.
