Home Health Care

Services given to patients at home by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, therapists, home health aides, or other trained workers. Certified home health agencies often provide and coordinate these services. These services, provided on a short-term basis and ordered by a physician, are usually covered by Medicare and Medicaid. With Medicaid, there are differences in coverage between states.
