How Does a Patient Qualify for Home Health?


First, a patient must be confined to home, which is known as homebound.

Second, the patient’s condition is essentially such that they’re normally unable to safely leave their home without the assistance of other and the aid of assistive devices (crutches, canes, walkers or a wheelchair), and third, doing so would require considerable and taxing effort.

A patient can generally leave home as often as they need for medical treatment that cannot be provided in the home and still be considered homebound. Further, they are allowed brief and infrequent absences from the home for some non-medical reasons, such as an occasional trip to the barber/beauty shop, to attend church, or for unique family events (like a graduation).

To qualify for home health, a patient must need skilled services
