The bottom line is that Medicare, Medicaid, insurance and other options (like VA benefits) can cover some non-medical home care for some people, sometimes.

For more detailed info, visit Costs.

Here is a quick summary:

  • Medicare does not cover non-medical home care unless a patient is eligible for Home Health Care (skilled nursing), continues to meet that requirement, and the non-medical home care is provided by a Home Health Agency. Even with these requirements, there is a limit to how much care will be covered.
  • Medicaid (AHCCCS in AZ) offers services for low-income individuals who require nursing home or in-home care and is intended for those who are blind, have a disability or are 65 or older.
  • Private health insurance companies typically cover some home care services for acute needs, but benefits for Long-Term services vary from plan to plan. Benefits vary by company so check with your insurer to see what may be covered and the circumstances under which you can use this benefit.
  • Long-term insurance policies can also help pay for services needed for people who want to age at home. Covered services typically include personal care, companionship, and other in-home services they desire and need as various care needs arise. Again, the amount of benefit varies based on the level of policy purchased so it’s best to check with your insurer.
  • Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension can help veterans of certain war periods and surviving spouses. Up to $1,632/month can be provided to a veteran, $1,055/month to a surviving spouse or $1,949 month to a couple. Need must be established by your physician to qualify and eligibility must be proven by filing the proper forms. This can be a slow process so it’s best to get started now.
  • Workers’ Compensation Any individual requiring medically necessary home care services as a result of injury on the job is eligible to receive coverage through workers’ compensation
  • Custom Care Plans: We can customize a plan to fit your needs and budget. Whether your needs are great or small, we can give you all of the options that make sense for your unique situation.For more detailed info, visit Costs.

    In addition to these questions, you can check out our Top 10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Home Care Agency for more in-depth questions.
  • Many people, especially those that are living independently, can be wary of asking for help. No one wants to feel like they’re losing their independence. Your mom probably has a lot of concerns (Will I like my caregiver? What does this mean? Do I really need this?) and she might not have a good understanding of what home care is all about. At Generations Home Care, we’ve found that the best way to make mom most comfortable is simple. Build a meaningful relationship right from the start. A great way to work through your mom’s concern is to arrange for one of our staff to come out and meet with both of you together. We can talk about what she wants, what kind of assistance we offer, answer her questions and concerns and give her a better understanding of what home care is all about.
    Anyone who’d like some help with day-to-day activities like errands, light housekeeping, meal planning/preparation, personal care, etc. is a candidate for home care. Many people choose home care to provide respite for a family caregiver, as an alternative to family caregiving or for live-in or 24/7 care. Others choose home care as a comforting alternative to an assisted-living or nursing facility. Did you know that 95% of people over 75 want to stay in their home for as long as possible? Home care can also be an ideal choice for people with disability, chronic or terminal illness, and those recovering from an illness, surgery or a hospital stay.
    Generations Home Care is taking home care in Phoenix to the highest level in the country. You will have confidence and peace of mind that you are receiving the best and most compassionate home care available with Generations Home Care. How do we know? We are one of few agencies that exceeds the strictest state licensing requirements and training standards in the country even though Arizona has no licensing requirements.
