Patient Information

Medicare Eligibility

Palmeira Home Health’s expert team can verify your eligibility for Home Health Services.

Generally, Medicare patients requiring home health must have an order by a physician, and include an accompanying statement of homebound status.

When we receive a referral from your physician, we will contact your insurance regarding requests, authorizations, determining co-payments and the number of visits they will approve. Once we have received all information, we will contact you with a complete update prior to starting care.

If you have Medicare, you can use your home health benefits if you meet all the following conditions:

  • You must be under the care of a doctor, and you must be getting services under a plan of care established and reviewed regularly by a doctor.
  • You must need, and a doctor must certify that you need, one or more of the following:
    • Intermittent skilled nursing care
    • Physical therapy
    • Social Worker
    • Speech-language pathology services
    • Continued occupational therapy
  • The home health agency caring for you must be approved by Medicare (Medicare-certified). Palmeira is Medicare-certified.
  • You must be homebound, and a doctor must certify that you’re homebound. “Homebound” means all or some of the following:
    • Leaving your home isn’t recommended because of your condition.
    • Your condition keeps you from leaving home without help (such as using a wheelchair or walker, needing special transportation, or getting help from another person).
    • Leaving home takes a considerable and taxing effort.
    • A person may leave home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, such as attending religious services, getting a haircut or pharmacy/grocery shopping.

If you’re under the care of a doctor for a condition that makes it difficult or impossible for you to leave your home, Contact Us to determine what Home Health benefits might be available to you. We will build a customized care plan to fit you.
