services such as skilled nursing visits, and therapy services. There are specific criteria required by these
insurances. It’s important to know what is covered and what isn’t prior to
becoming a Home Health patient. Contact us today for more information. Most insurance,
unless you have long term care insurance, does not cover hourly attendant care

staying in your own home.
