Medicare Guidelines for Home Health Care

Medicare will pay for health care services provided in a patient’s residence only if all of these conditions are met:

  • Patient is eligible for Medicare benefits
  • Patient needs intermittent skilled nursing or physical therapy or occupational or speech therapy
  • Patient must meet homebound criteria (see definition below)

Homebound Status Defined

A homebound person is defined as one who requires considerable effort and assistance to leave home and needs care on an intermittent basis.

Patients may be considered homebound if absences from the home are:

  • Infrequent
  • For periods of relatively short duration, or
  • Attributable to the need to receive medical treatment including attendance at a psychosocial or medical day treatment program accredited, licensed or certified by the state

Patients with a psychiatric disease or condition may be considered homebound even if their physical ability is unimpaired, when certain conditions are met.

Generally a beneficiary will be considered to be homebound if he/she has a condition:

  • Due to an illness or injury which restricts the ability to leave home except with the aid of supportive devices (crutch, cane, wheelchair, walker) special transportation, or another person
  • That is such that leaving his/her home is medically contraindicated

Patient is under the care of a doctor who:

  • Determines the need for home care is medically necessary and medically reasonable
  • Sets up and periodically reviews a home health agency plan of care
  • The home health agency serving the patient is approved for payment by the Medicare program

When in doubt about homebound status, call our intake staff and they will be able to assist you!
