This month’s Home Health Care Tip comes from Andrea McDonald, Director of Admissions.
Do you know that you have a choice when it comes to your home health provider?
As a person with Medicare, you have certain rights. By federal law you have the right to choose which agency you use for your home health care. For members of managed care plans, your choices might be limited by which agency is in-network with your plan. Always check with your preferred provider to determine if they are in-network.
When it is time to choose an agency, your provider (physician, nurse practitioner, case manager, social worker, etc.) should provide you with a list of agencies. It is recommended that you then research those agencies to decide which one you prefer. You can visit www.medicare.gov/
