En español | People with Medicare are covered for home health care services if they meet all of the following conditions:
- A doctor has both determined the need for medical care at home and outlined a plan for that care.
- They require skilled nursing care, physical therapy, speech-language therapy or continued occupational therapy.
- They are being cared for by a Medicare-certified home health agency.
- They must be homebound. This means that leaving home is a major effort.
