Referrals for Home Health Services:
Referrals for home health Services may be made by patients and family members. However, home care cannot be initiated without a physician's order. Upon referral from a physician, a nurse or therapist will perform an assessment of the patient in his or her home. A plan of care will be formulated from this assessment. The nurse then coordinates with the home health team to provide home care services that are suited to each patient's specific needs. The care provided may be temporary, involving just a few hours a day, to more permanent and full time care.
Family participation is important. The agency's team works to ensure that the patient receives the best care possible. The team provides family members and the patient's caregivers with education, counseling, and support. Because medical social workers of the home health team have an extensive knowledge of community-based programs, they can make referrals to resources that best fulfill the patient's needs. Medicare Home Health Care benefits are available to patients if they meet four conditions:
- Their doctor must decide that they need medical care in their home and must make a plan for that care
- They must need intermittent skilled nursing care, physical therapy, speech language pathology services or occupational therapy
- They must be homebound
- The home health agency caring for them must be approved by the Medicare program
