Payment of services?
Our agency invoices the family/patient twice a month. On the 15th of each month and at the end of that month. We expect payment for services to paid prior to our agency sending out invoices for next invoicing period.
Is there a deposit required?
Yes. A one-week deposit that is fully refundable or applied to the last invoice at the end of services.
Does Medicare, Medicaid, or Insurance pay for Home Care?
No. Medicare and Medicaid and insurance only cover skilled home care such as Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing, and Speech Therapy.
However, Long-Term Care Insurance does pay for care if you have that kind of coverage.
How often are there rate increases in care?
As older adults tend to experience decreased energy levels and an increase in dependency on supportive services, it is not uncommon for care needs, and therefore costs to increase over time.
Increases are approved by the family, caregiver, and agency. Live-In Day Rates are subject to increase when the demands of the work assignment increase, based on two or more caregivers providing common feedback that have taken care of the patient.
Remember that senior housing and care services do not offer the same one-on-one care provided by in-home care. In-home care provides more personalized and diligent attention to a patient.
Can we stop service at any time without a penalty?
We ask no more than a week’s notice to end services. Of course if the client passes away or goes into the hospital, this is waived.
