Frequently Asked Questions

We want you to be comfortable and knowledgable about the process of setting up, paying for and utilizing home health care. Read our FAQs below for answers or contact us with additional questions.

What is home health care?

Home health care providers are experienced professionals who provide patients with the medical care they need to recover from an illness or an injury. The goal, with home health care, is for the patient to regain independence and avoid costly skilled nursing or rehabilitation centers. All Saints Health offers health care services such as skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social workers and home health aides.
We specialize in treating acute as well as chronic conditions including:
Heart disease
Diabetes
Chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease (COPD)
Chronic kidney disease
Recovery from surgery or illness
Other illnesses and conditions
You receive the services you need based on a plan of care, which is an individual plan developed by your doctor with our clinical team. Services may include:
Nursing care
Therapy
Pain management
Medication management
Wound care
On the first visit, a nurse or therapist will assess the needs and goals for the patient. Our care plans focus on how we can help our patients return to health, in partnership with your primary care providers and caregivers. We are here to make the transition from a hospital or skilled nursing facility back to your home much smoother for you and your caregivers.
Yes! Every patient has unique needs. Our team will come to your home to evaluate your needs and review the plan of care from your doctor. We will communicate with your doctors to fulfill their plan and to work on goals for continued improvement. All Saints Health staff will update your doctor on your progress and if your condition changes, we will communicate with your doctor and make adjustments as needed.
The plan of care provided by your doctor will help us determine how often our staff will visit. If your needs change, adjustments will be made to make sure your home health needs are being met.
Yes! We would love to be a part of your, or your loved one’s home health care. Federal law gives patients the freedom to choose their health care provider.
To receive home health care under the Medicare Benefit there are requirements that must be met including:
  • You must have a doctor prescription for home health care
  • You must need either skilled nursing care or therapy on an intermittent basis (i.e., physical/occupational/speech therapy)
  • You must be considered “homebound” (see below)
Homebound individuals are unable to leave the home safely without the assistance of others or assistive devices including canes, wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, etc. In addition, leaving home would require considerable effort. However, patients can still be considered homebound if they can leave home for medical treatment that cannot be provided in the home. Occassional trips for non-medical reasons such as special family events or church are also allowed for homebound individuals.

If your doctor certifies you need home health care and if you meet eligibility requirements, your care may be covered by Medicare.

Private insurance or Medicaid may also cover some home health care or services Medicare doesn’t cover. Check the KanCare program or with your private insurance company to learn about their specific eligibility requirements.
