Medicare eligible patients must be under the care of a licensed physician who determines the need for home health care, has a medical necessity for intermittent skilled nursing, physical therapy, or speech therapy, and be homebound.
APC is licensed by TDHS as a Home and Community Support Service Agency to provide licensed and certified home health services (L & CHHS).
Medicaid: Professional home health services are provided to homebound Medicaid eligible patients. Medicaid home health benefits to eligible patients include skilled nurse services, home health aide visits, physical therapy visits, occupational therapy visits, and expandable medical supplies provided at their place of residence.
While a physician order is required, clients eligible for Medicaid benefits must be homebound and meet specific criteria for admission. This criteria includes the following: a medical necessity for home health services, medical supplies or DME; care must be appropriate in the home; and the patient must have a caregiver that is available, responsible, and capable if the patient is unable to perform their own care, or monitor their own medical condition and safety.
