Paying for Home Health Care
Yadkin Valley Home Health is certified by Medicare and Medicaid. Both will cover the full cost of care if Medicare/Medicaid guidelines are met. Most major insurances cover skilled care and medical supplies. You can check with your insurer or call us and we can research it for you.
Traditional Medicare, as well as the Medicare managed care programs like Advantage and Partners, require that you be homebound. This means that if you were to leave your home to receive services (for example, for outpatient physical therapy), your visit would be a taxing effort on you. Medicare regulates in-home care for people who cannot easily receive nursing or therapy services in other settings like outpatient clinics.
