What are the Medicare Home Health Qualifications?

  • Your doctor must decide that you need medical care in your home, and make a plan for your care at home.
  • You must need at least one of the following: intermittent (and not full time) skilled nursing care, physical therapy or speech therapy services.
  • You must be homebound.
  • The Medicare program must approve the home health agency caring for you.

What is the definition of “homebound?”
Homebound – This means that you are normally unable to leave your home. A patient is considered “homebound” if leaving the home requires a considerable and taxing effort and the patient doesn’t go out very often or for short periods, or it is medically inadvisable. Generally you are unable to leave home without the aid of crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, or another person’s assistance. When you leave home, it must be infrequent, for a short time or to get medical care.
