Medicaid Coverage for Your Home Health Services
Visiting Nurse Association (VNA Home Health) is a Medicaid certified home health agency.
Medicaid is a federal and state program that pays for certain health care services provided to low-income patients, including home health. It is up to each state to determine its own requirements and coverage. To qualify for Medicaid, beneficiaries must have low-incomes, little savings and no other substantial assets, as defined by the state.
All states allow Medicaid to pay for basic home health care, which includes:
Medicaid may pay for homemaker and other services not paid for by Medicare. Additional coverage and patient eligibility requirements vary by state:
In Kansas, Medicaid also covers home health rehabilitation therapy services. The state of Kansas does not require patients to be homebound to qualify for home health coverage, but prior authorization for home health services may be required.
Missouri Medicaid only pays for rehabilitation therapy services if the Medicaid benefits are due to blindness. To qualify for home health coverage from Missouri Medicaid, the patient must be homebound.
