When MEDICARE Home Health Care Benefits are not enough

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers eligible home health services like intermittent skilled nursing care, physical therapy, speech-language pathology services, continued occupational services, and more. Usually, a home health care agency coordinates the services your doctor orders for you. 

Medicare doesn't pay for:

  • 24-hour-a-day care at home
  • Meals delivered to your home
  • Homemaker services  
  • Personal care
