In brief, the answer is 'no'. Medicare Interactive (www.medicareinteractive.org) identifies home health care items NOT covered by Medicare as:
- 24-hour a day care at home
- Prescription drugs (must be enrolled in Medicare Part D)
- Meals delivered to your home
- Homemaker or custodial care services (i.e., cooking, shopping, laundry)
Hill Country Care Providers offers 24 hour in-home care services for our Austin, Texas clients, meaning that Medicare does not cover this care option. In fact, we are an entirely private pay home health agency. We are focused on providing premier in-home care, not simply on providing the minimal care covered by Medicare. Our clients either have additional long-term health care insurance or prefer to pay out of pocket for the best care available.
