When MEDICARE Home Health Care Benefits are not Enough
Medicare does NOT cover in-home companion care or most other types of hourly personal care services. The services covered by Medicare are complicated, but, basically Medicare covers in-home skilled nursing services; physical, occupational and speech therapy; plus some other occasional home health aide services.
