Insurance Coverage for In-Home Care

Does insurance cover home care services for seniors? The answer is: maybe.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some long-term care insurance policies cover certain in-home care services. Check your policy to see if it covers the services you need at home. We work with many long-term care (LTC) insurance companies to bring you the covered services you need over the short or long term.

Home Instead Senior Care provides personal care (ADL assistance) for owners of Long Term Care Insurance policies. We can also assist families through the initial authorization and ongoing claims process. Most Long Term Care Insurance policies require that the recipient need assistance with at least 2 of 6 Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Activities of Daily Living typically include: Bathing, Dressing, Eating, Continence, Toileting and Transferring. Home Instead Senior Care provides a full scope of Personal Care Services, which covers all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Many Long Term Care Insurance policies refer to these Activities of Daily Living as Home Health, when in fact, they do not require Skilled Nursing Care and could be referred to as Custodial Care or Home Care. At its basic level, "home health care" means exactly what it sounds like – medical care provided in a patient's home. Home health care can include broad care given by skilled medical professionals, including skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
