Does Medicare cover home health aide services?

June 22, 2020

From the Medical News Today website

Home health primarily involves helping a person receive care in their own home instead of the hospital when it is appropriate.

In many cases, home health costs less and is just as effective as care that a person may otherwise receive in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) or hospital.

For Medicare to pay for home healthcare, a Medicare-certified home health agency must provide the service. People who receive services from a noncertified home health agency will need to pay the costs out of pocket.

In this article, we explain the coverage of home health services under Medicare.
