Description

This booklet describes the home health care services that Medicare covers, and how to get those benefits through Medicare. If you get your Medicare benefits through a Medicare health plan (not Original Medicare) check your plan’s membership materials, and contact the plan for details about how the plan provides your Medicare-covered home health benefits. 

Medicare pays for you to get health care services in your home if you meet certain eligibility criteria and if the services are considered reasonable and necessary for the treatment of your illness or injury.
