Private Health Insurance
If the person needing care has private health insurance, they should check their coverage for home health care as it varies from plan to plan. Short-term skilled nursing care post-surgery or after an injury not directly related to an auto or workers compensation accident, most private insurance will cover those costs.
If the person needing care requires help and/or rehabilitation because of an auto accident or job-related injury for example, workers compensation, auto insurance, or employer and consumer plans may pay for home health services.
