To qualify for Medicare Home Health Services, the following 3 criteria must be met:
1. A Medicare approved physician must order the home health services. The patient must also have completed a face to face home health encounter/visit with the physician within the previous 90 days of home health admission or within 30 days after home health admission.
2. The patient must be homebound. Medicare states that patient visits outside of the home must be infrequent and require a taxing effort.
3. A patient need for a Skilled Nurse, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist or Speech Therapist must be supported as evidenced by acute changes in clinical/functional status or difficulty in the ability to manage a disease process.
