Supplementation of current outpatient/home health programs
There is a lot to consider when choosing what services is right for you. Fortunately, being ill or needing special care doesn’t always require trips to the hospital or an extended stay in a rehabilitation center. Today people can receive therapy in an outpatient setting or in their homes from home health care. Traditionally, people are referred to home health therapy or outpatient therapy if there is a decline in function or change in medical status.
Outpatient therapy requires a physician prescription or signed order for outpatient Physical, Occupational, or Speech therapy. These services are either fully covered by your insurance or may require a copay. Typically, outpatient therapists will see 1-3 clients at a time, 1-3 times a week, and utilize exercise machines.
Home health therapies require an individual to be home bound and a physician’s order. Services are covered 100% by your insurance and are provided in your home no more than 13 visits between all home health disciplines in a 30-day cycle. What does this mean? Well, if you have a wound requiring nursing care then you may not be able to receive therapy services during your home health.
