Will My Medicare or Health Insurance Pay for In-Home Care?

Medicare and traditional health insurance only pay for “skilled care”, this means that the care must be ordered by a physician, must be medically necessary, and must be monitored by a healthcare professional.

In the case of Medicare, the patient must also be home-bound and unable to run errands or engage in activity outside of the home. Medicare and traditional health insurance pay for very limited amounts of care, for very brief periods of time. Companion care and non-medical home care are typically not paid for by Medicare or traditional health insurance; however, some Medicare Advantage Plans are now open to paying for in-home care. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan – please check with them to see if they offer this benefit.
