PAYING FOR HOME CARE
Many people have questions about how to pay for the home care services they need. There are various funding sources available. You may be eligible for some coverage under Medicare or Medicaid, or under county social services funds.
Some insurance policies, such as long term care insurance, also partially cover the cost of home care. And in some cases, the costs are borne by the patient or the patient's family.
Another step in the process is to call an accredited agency which services the county where you live. The agency will help you in determining what coverage you may be eligible for.
