Overview

Home is often the best place for healing. Surrounded by familiar settings, family and friends, you can relax and allow the healing process to begin. To aid in your recovery, your doctor may recommend medical care provided in your home.

Referral criteria
A physician’s order is required for obtaining home health services. However, you may request information from Providence Home Health, and we will assist you with the process.

Payment
Medicare, Medicaid, worker’s compensation and most private insurance companies and HMOs cover the cost of home health care. Coverage and prior authorizations differ from plan to plan. Our staff will verify benefits and communicate with you about any financial responsibilities you may have.

Financial assistance may be available, based on income, if you do not have insurance. We know that recovery and rehabilitation can be challenging. 

We at Providence Home Health want to help in practical ways to make you and your family’s experience a little easier. We’ve developed a few tools that may help.
