Nearly everyone prefers to be home in their own bed when they are ill. In fact, we find most people actually get well quicker at home. Home Health can assist when there is a need for skilled care.
Coastal Home Health & Hospice is Medicare and Medicaid Certified and Licensed by the State of Oregon. We are considered a leading provider of comprehensive home health services in Curry County. Three cornerstones provide the building blocks upon which our success is built:
We are committed to providing the highest quality and most cost-effective care for each individual patient.
We are dedicated to the principle that everyone deserves to receive the best possible care. For more than 40 years that philosophy has shown through in the expert care we provide.
We are committed to listening, and adapting, to the needs of our patients
Medicare and/or Medicaid will cover the cost of in-home healthcare services for those patients over the age of 65 who meet either program’s eligibility requirements. Private insurance companies, managed-care organizations, and workers’ compensation plans may also pay for in-home healthcare services.
U.S. veterans in the VA program living with a complex, chronic, or disabling disease with a short-term need for skilled services or assistance with daily living activities may qualify for in-home healthcare benefits. Learn more at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs website at va.gov.
Medicaid has a government program in every state that provides medical assistance to people who meet income eligibility requirements. To qualify, a family’s income must be of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or lower (in 2016, $15,654 for a single person and $21,186 for a family of two.) If Social Security is your parents’ primary source of income and their home their main asset, they may meet Medicaid requirements. An attorney specializing in elder care may be able to provide guidance on eligibility requirements. Qualifications vary from state to state, but general information about eligibility is available at www.medicaid.gov.
Private health Insurance can also help, but they should check their coverage for home health care as it varies from plan to plan. Short-term skilled nursing care post-surgery or after an injury not directly related to an auto or workers compensation accident, most private insurance will cover those costs. High deductible plans tied to health savings accounts may offer tax advantages so ask about that benefit as well.
Private Pay is also an option for families that choose to pay for home health care expenses out-of-pocket. Retirement income, savings, stocks, home equity, or gifts from family members are all possible sources for covering home health care expenses. If you do choose to pay out-of-pocket, discuss the benefits of the various sources with an elder care attorney or financial adviser.
