Frequently Asked Questions

What is home health?
Home health care is care provided to you in the comfort of your own home. Our team of skilled nurses and licensed therapists collaborate with your primary care physician in order to provide you rehabilitation and/or nursing needs in your own home.
What is needed in order to qualify for home health?

Three things are needed in order for a patient to receive home health services.

Those include:

  • The patient must be homebound
  • The patient must have an order from a physician for home health services.
  • The patient must have a skilled need.
What does homebound mean?

According to the CMS, Medicare considers a patient homebound if they require the help of another person or an assistive device, such as a walker, a wheelchair or crutches to leave your home. Additionally, if a patient’s doctor believes that their health or illness could worsen by leaving their home or it is too taxing to leave their home, they are considered homebound.

Is a patient ever allowed to leave their home?

Yes! Patients are allowed to leave their homes for medical appointments and treatment, religious services and non-medical events such as a wedding, funeral, graduation, beauty parlor/barber or family reunion. Patients are also able to attend adult day care services and still be considered homebound.

Are home health services covered by insurance?

Yes! Home health services are covered 100% by Medicare. At PRN Home Health & Therapy we accept a number of insurance plans. Prior to admission our intake coordinators will gather all of the necessary information to verify benefits so there are no surprises.

What services are covered under home health?
  • Skilled nursing
    • Wound care
    • Medication Management
    • Pain Management
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
How often will my nurse and/or therapist see me?

Every patient’s care plan is unique and tailored to their needs. Upon admission our nurses and therapists will create a care plan and the patient’s primary care physician will sign off on that. Depending on how a patient is progressing their doctor may increase or decrease the number of visits.

How long does a patient receive home health?

Home health is designed to be for a short period of time (typically 30-60 days.) It allows for a patient to receive the care they need to stabilize their health. Our home health care professional teaches the patient and/or family how to manage their medical condition independently.

What is the difference between home health and personal home care?

Home health requires a patient to have a skilled, medical need. Home care, on the other hand, is for any non-medical care. These services may include cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, companion care, etc. While PRN Home Health & Therapy does not provide personal home care, we have worked alongside a number of providers to maximize the care needed.

Is home health provided in assisted living facilities?

Yes, home health services are provided wherever a patient calls home? This may include an assisted living, in their family home, a senior apartment community or with a loved on.

Is PRN Home Health & Therapy certified?

Yes! PRN Home Health & Therapy is certified by CMS (Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services) and licensed by the Joint Commission.

How do I make a referral?

Referrals can be faxed directly to our office at 920-212-3153. We must have an order from the patient’s primary care physician for care to be provided. If you have any questions you can contact our intake team at 920-830-9911.
