When you start to look at care option for yourself or a loved one, one of the factors you’ll want to take into consideration is the cost of the care. Some people make the mistake of writing off home health care as a possibility because they assume it will cost too much to have that kind of personalized care in their home. In truth, though, home health care in Pennsylvania is often one of the more affordable care solutions.
Why Is Home Health Care Affordable?
Lower overhead costs.
When it comes to a place like a nursing home or assisted living facility, there are significant overhead costs associated with maintaining the buildings and providing the care that the patients need. Because home health care has significantly less overhead, it’s often a more affordable option. Instead of paying for the skilled and non-skilled nursing care you need as well as the facility you are now living in, you get to stay in your own home and simply get the care that you need.
Care is tailored to your needs.
Home health care can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual patient. That means whether they need assistance a few hours a week or 24 hours a day, they can be matched with the kind of caregiver that they need. That means patients aren’t paying for services that they don’t need or won’t use like they would in a nursing home or assisted living facility. You simply pay for the help that you need and always have the option to adjust that level of care in the future, too.
Most insurance policies offer home health care coverage.
Home health care has become so popular and such an affordable option for both patients and insurance companies that most policies now cover at-home care. You’ll need to check your individual coverage or work with our medical social workers to determine your coverage, but in many cases, our patients discover that their policies cover a significant portion of the costs.
