Medicare Home Care Programs
The Medicare Home Care Program covers skilled services ordered by a physician. Our skilled services include nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. We also have the following ancillary services through this program of medical social worker and certified nursing assistants. Medicare pays for this service as long as you are homebound, remain under the care of a physician and require a skilled service.
We also accept most Commercial Insurance. We are a provider for the EEOICPA (Dept of Labor Sick Workers) program.
The Home Health program includes our sliding scale fee for service, and the Options and NFCG program through ETHRA. This program mainly consists of personal care service, and some light housekeeping, although we also cover skilled services if the client has no other coverage for this. These programs also require a physician’s order to meet the regulations to be licensed as a home care agency in the state of Tennessee. These services are funded by the United Way and by our fundraisers.
The Respite program we offer is for our Medicare and Commercial Insurance clients. We allow up to 4 hrs per week of respite that is provided to them at no charge. This is funded through United Way and other donors.
