How To Fund Your Home Care
Families are often concerned about how much home care services cost and what their financial options are for payment. Fortunately, there are many resources available to help with in-home care expenses.
At Interim HealthCare of Interim HealthCare of Brookings, Sioux Falls and Fargo, we are dedicated making quality care widely accessible, which is why we accept these payment sources:
Medicare is a U.S. government program providing healthcare insurance to individuals 65 and older, or those under 65 who meet eligibility requirements.
Medicaid is a joint state and federal program that provides health coverage to seniors with low income and limited assets. Benefits are administered on a state level, so eligibility requirements and covered services can differ greatly.
Private pay means an individual or their family will use existing savings and assets to cover the cost of care services.
VA is a health care program that provides civilian health benefits for U.S. Armed Forces military personnel, military retirees, and their dependents. Basic in-home care authorized under the VA includes skilled nursing care and home health aide services.
Long-Term Care Plans
Long-term care involves a variety of services designed to meet a person's health or personal care needs so they can live as independently and safely as possible. Most long-term care is provided at home by unpaid family members and friends, and the additional support of a care aide.
