Frequently Asked Questions: Home Care on Long Island

Once home care starts, am I locked in to a set schedule with my Home Health Aide?

No. We work with the needs of the patient, and with a days’ notice we can usually change the schedule. Requested shifts should be at least four hours in duration.

What home care services will I be billed for?

A nurse will visit you at your Long Island home to open your case, at which time he/she will assess your needs of daily living and recommend the amount of hours needed for home health aide services. Depending on your needs and personal circumstances, different services may be covered by insurance. Medicare and/or Medicaid may cover skilled services that are ordered by a physician, such as nursing and rehabilitation, and may cover home health aide services in some cases. Long term care insurance may also pay for some home care services. At other times, aide or companion services may be billed directly. Before beginning home care services, a full financial plan will be discussed, and we will work with you to ensure you are receiving the reimbursement to which you are entitled.
