Home Now Healthcare accepts your Medicare home health benefit as 100% payment. With Home Now, qualified home health patients have no copays, no deductibles, and no cost-sharing of any kind.
To qualify for Medicare's home health benefit, beneficiaries must have a need for the skilled services of a nurse, physical therapist, or speech therapist. Patients need to be under a doctor's care for the condition. The need for service must not be a long-term need and must be for intermittent care, as opposed to continuous care. Finally, during home health, patients must meet Medicare's definition of homebound. This only means that a patient needs the assistance of a person or aid (such as a walker) to leave the home, and that trips are therefore infrequent and of short duration.
