Did you know that none of the following outings will necessarily disqualify a person from home health services?
Do you have Medicare? You qualify! Medicare even allows for temporary increase in the number of outings a patient may have. For instance, if a family visits from out-of-town and provides and unusual opportunity for the patient to get out more often, the activity does not disqualify the patient from the home health services. Medicare instructs care planners to consider a patient's ability to leave the home as it exist over the entire plan of care and to allow shore-term exceptions. If you have concerns about whether or not a patient will meet home health criteria, call us for more information.
