Home Health FAQs
What do I need to do to obtain service from Ashtabula Regional Home Health Services?
Talk to your doctor about whether home care is right for you. A physician's order is needed for the majority of home care services. Or call our office at 440.992.4663 or toll-free 800.722.3330 to discuss your needs, and we will help direct you.
Will the home care staff stay all day?
Not for skilled care provided by nursing and therapy. Skilled visits are for intermittent care and are usually for approximately an hour. The goal of the visits is to help teach the patient and family to be independent in their care. Private duty aide care is available for longer periods of time. This type of custodial care is usually not covered by insurance but is available on a private pay basis.
Who pays for home care services?
Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, workers' compensation and Veterans Health Association all pay for home care if certain criteria are met. The care must be medically reasonable and necessary, it must be difficult for the patient to leave the home, and it must be safe for the patient to receive the services at home. Ashtabula Regional Home Health also has some additional sources of funding to provide personal care and homemaking services when insurance coverage ends.
Is the agency and staff licensed?
The state of Ohio does not have licensure for home care. Ashtabula Regional Home Health is a Medicare/Medicaid-certified home care agency. All professional staff have current licensure and all home health aides are certified home care aides.
Home visits by ARHH staff are scheduled at the convenience of the patients. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
