Medicare covers a variety of health care services that can be provided in the comfort and privacy of the individual’s home. These include intermittent skilled nursing care, physical therapy, speech-language pathology services, and occupational therapy. Such services used to be available only at a hospital or doctor’s office. But they’re just as effective, more convenient, and usually less expensive when you get them in the home. Those who get Medicare benefits through a Medicare Advantage health plan (instead of Original Medicare) should check with the plan for details about how it provides Medicare-covered home health benefits.
