Patients qualify for Medicare coverage by being homebound, under the care of a physician, and in need of one of the following skilled services: nursing, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, or occupational therapy. Patients needing only personal or custodial (non-skilled) care will not qualify for Medicare home health benefits, but may be assessed for eligibility of the Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) Program.

This coverage will also pay for patients requiring skilled or maintenance nursing care and/or rehabilitation services under physician’s orders, even if they are not homebound.
