Home Health Payors We Accept
Medicare supports Home Health services by reimbursing care providers for 100% of eligible services and supplies. This means that for most Medicare insured patients there is no out of pocket expense, no deductibles and no lifetime maximums. A Medicare Home Health “episode” is for 60-days and Medicare allows for multiple episodes if the patient’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) authorizes recertification.

Commercial Insurance Coverage
Each Commercial Insurance company sells multiple types of health insurance plans. When commercial health insurance is the source of payment a Baptist intake specialist will work with you to understand what is covered by your plan and if you will be responsible for co-payments or if there are any care limits. All Commercial Insurance must be pre-authorized by the patient’s health insurance provider prior to scheduling services.
