Home health services are covered for clients living in their own home or with a relative. Clients in nursing homes may get services of a qualified independent therapist as home health services. Services include: nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Services must be because of illness or disability and must follow a plan ordered by a doctor.
If care is required for an extended period, compare the cost of home health care to the cost of nursing home care.
