Elder Planning Isn't Just For The Elderly

Eligibility requirements to receive home care

Throughout people's lives in New York, many things can happen to one's body. People may suffer injuries or develop diseases and illnesses. In these situations, people may require trips to the doctor and the use of other healthcare professionals. As people get older though, they tend to experience more of these complications and require more extensive long-term medical care. People have options, though, depending on their needs.

They may need to go to a nursing home or assisted living facility, as they may require memory care and other types of cares as well that require them going to an outside facility. However, some people may also be able to receive home care for their issues. Not everyone is eligible to receive home care though. First they must meet certain requirements.

To be eligible, the person must have a plan of care from the doctor who is treating them. The doctor providing the care must also certify that the person requires at least one of the following, but could require more than one: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech services, occasional nurse care or the doctor must certify that the person is homebound. However, if the person requires more than just part-time or intermittent nurse care, they are not eligible for home care.

All of these types of care cost money, just like any other medical services, and they can become very costly depending on the type of care required. People who find themselves in these situations may be eligible for Medicaid, which can help pay for these services.

There are many individuals in New York who require extensive medical treatment. People in this situation may not be able to work at all though, which makes paying for these services difficult. However, they may also be eligible for Medicaid. People must go through an application process for this. It is important to understand Medicaid planning so people receive coverage for the care they need. Experienced attorneys understand the application process and may be able to guide one through it.
