What are your Home Health Options?
Patient Choice Advice - How to Find an Approved Agency
You have the right to choose the home health agency from which you get services. Your choice should be honored by your doctor, hospital discharge planner or other referring agency. It is important to remember that Medicare only pays for home health services that are provided by a home health agency that meets Medicare's quality standards. Medicare inspects home health agencies every year to assure these standards are met.
You can find a Medicare approved Home Health agency by: asking your doctor or hospital discharge planner, a senior community referral service, or other community agencies involved with your health care.
