What will home care cost me?

Medicare, Medicaid, government plans, or private insurance most often pays for skilled home care services. However, commercial plans may have a deductible or co-pay that you would be responsible to pay for out-of-pocket. Sometimes, insurance benefits can be complicated, but our experienced staff can help you work through this process and answer your questions. We welcome you to contact us if you need further assistance.

How do I qualify for home care?

In order to qualify for home care, you must meet the following criteria.

  1. You have to be under the care of a physician while you are on home care services.
  2. You require the skills for a nurse or therapist in the home.
  3. Most insurances require you to be homebound. This means:
    • It is taxing and hard for you to get out on a routine basis.
    • You need the assistance of a person, device, or special transportation.
    • You leave the home infrequently for things other than for medical reasons.
What is Telehealth and how do I qualify for it?

Cornerstone VNA offers a robust Telehealth program to be able to provide healthcare services remotely. Our Telehealth Nurse utilizes video conferencing to provide remote monitoring and support of patients. There is no cost for this service. To see if Telehealth is right for you or your loved one, Cornerstone VNA will conduct a patient assessment, particularly with those who have high-risk diagnoses such as Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Diabetes or those who are at high risk of returning to the hospital. A Telehealth Nurse at Cornerstone VNA will check in on you as needed and help provide services to keep you home and out of the hospital.

What services will I qualify for?

Your hospital, rehabilitation facility, or physician’s office will order the services that you need. When a Registered Nurse or Physical Therapist from Cornerstone VNA visits you for the first time, he/she will review what services have been ordered for you and what other services you may need. Services may include Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitation Therapy, Medical Social Work, and/or Home Health Aide services. Qualifications can depend on many things, so be sure to contact us to talk to our clinical experts for additional information.
