Home Care Q & A

How does home care work?

After you and your healthcare provider discuss your medical needs, they can arrange a home visitation and treatment plan. A team member from the office visits your home based on a set schedule and provides treatment and care for your condition.

What services does home care provide?

Home care providers offer a variety of services, but some of the most common include:

  • Checking your diet to make sure you’re eating healthy
  • Measuring your vitals, such as blood pressure and heart rate
  • Providing wound care, such as cleaning the wound and changing bandages
  • Delivering medication, including injections and IV therapy
  • Education on proper care and preventive health

Unlike personal home care assistance, home health care is prescribed for necessary, skilled medical services in the home. Personal home care assistance provides unskilled help, such as transportation and food preparation.

What if I need transportation or other home services?

Dr. Nasra’s team doesn’t provide personal home care assistance such as cooking, transportation, or cleaning services. However, your provider is happy to assist you in finding a local personal home care service that can work in tandem with their medical team to take care of your needs.

Is home care covered by my insurance?

Many insurance companies cover home care for qualified individuals. Medicare in particular covers:

  • Skilled nursing services, such as injections, catheter changes, and other supervisory management
  • Skilled therapy services, including speech and physical therapy
  • Medical social services
  • Medical supplies and specific pieces of durable medical equipment

Am I eligible for home care?

Many health insurance companies, including Medicare, require you meet a few specific requirements to be eligible for home care:

  • You must be homebound, meaning it’s difficult for you to leave your home.
  • You need intermittent care from nursing services or intermittent therapy care. Your care needs typically must be regular, on a set schedule, and must have an end.
  • You must meet with your doctor 90 days before the first home care visit or 30 days after.
  • Your doctor must sign off on a home health certification that indicates you’re homebound and need home care.
