How can I hire and pay for a home health aide?

If you are eligible for home health care, the Original Medicare Plan will cover home health aide services on a part-time or intermittent basis, if you are also getting skilled care such a nursing care or other therapy from the home health agency. A home health aide doesn't have a nursing license. The aide provides support services for skilled nursing care. These services include help with personal care such as bathing, using the toilet, or dressing. For Medicare to pay, the home health aide services must be part of the care for your illness or injury. For more information, please see the publication, "Medicare and Home Health Care". You can find Home Health Agencies (including those agencies who have home health aides) in the Home Health Compare section of this web site.
