How long will I receive home health services?

Upon admission, the RN will establish a 60 day plan of care. Towards the end of the 60 days, a RN will reevaluate your need for home health services. If you continue to have a need, you will be recertified for another 60 day period. Medicare does not have a limit on how long you can receive home health. As long as you meet the homebound and skilled need criteria, your services can continue. If you have a Medicare replacement or private insurance policy, you will need to refer to your policy for any preauthorization need or limits.
